The Arizona Board of Regents has called an executive-session meeting for Thursday to discuss the University of Arizona’s men’s basketball program after new allegations surfaced in a federal court trial about assistant coaches offering money to recruits.

The regents, who oversee the state universities and approve head coaching contracts, have scheduled a meeting to receive “legal advice and discussion” for 11 a.m. at Arizona State University’s downtown Phoenix campus. The meeting is closed to the public, and the board is currently not scheduled to take any action after the meeting.

“We always knew we would need to monitor things closely as the judicial proceedings elsewhere proceeded. We are now convening for another update in the wake of the trials that were carried out within the past several weeks,” Regent Jay Heiler said in an interview with The Arizona Republicand azcentral.com.

Regents are expected to get an update during the meeting from UA President Robert C. Robbins.
