Sean Miller could be compelled to testify in the ongoing federal corruption case involving college basketball after a video played to jurors Wednesday showed an aspiring agent bragging about his relationship with the Arizona Wildcats coach.
Defense attorney Steve Haney said he will ask the judge to reconsider a ruling preventing Miller from testifying after videotape was shown to a jury in which Christian Dawkins said he knew and worked with Miller and former UA assistant coach Book Richardson. Haney said Wednesday that he doesn’t plan to waste much time.
“First thing, 9 o’clock tomorrow morning,” he said.
Federal judge Edgardo Ramos ruled Friday that Miller and LSU coach Will Wade did not need to testify in the trial because they were irrelevant to the felony bribery charges facing Dawkins and former Adidas rep Merl Code. The judge said then that he could change his mind depending on what evidence was provided.
