The ongoing saga involving LSU head coach Will Wade took another turn this week as FBI agents were reportedly in Baton Rouge to investigate the suspended coach’s recruiting tactics.
According to a report from Yahoo’s Dan Wetzel, Pat Forde and Pete Thamel the FBI agents made it a point to conduct in-person work regarding Wade after his March 8th suspension. Yahoo also reports that the FBI’s increased attention into Wade’s recruiting tactics “could signal an expansion in the federal basketball corruption case.”
Wade has been suspended indefinitely by LSU after he was reportedly captured on wiretaps with convicted felon and runner Christian Dawkins. Already facing a subpoena, Wade’s been suspended by LSU for his refusal to meet with the school regarding the wiretapped conversations.
Without Wade on the bench, LSU still advanced to the Sweet 16 this season after winning the SEC regular-season title.
