Cecil Hurt Discusses Kobie Baker’s Resignation
Following an FBI investigation that led to the arrest of assistant coaches from four major college basketball programs, the University of Alabama conducted an internal investigation. The resignation of administrator Kobie Baker was accepted as the result.
Cecil Hurt joined hosts Wimp and Barry Sanderson "Inside The Locker Room" to provide an update on the program after Baker's resignation.
Hurt explained that the internal investigation indicated that Baker may have been involved in a meeting with Rashan Michel, an Atlanta-based adviser who was arrested on Tuesday as part of an FBI sting operation.
"Avery Johnson hasn't had a comment yet," Hurt said. "There are no other coaches mentioned, there is no mention that any coach was aware."
Hurt specified that technically Collin Sexton is not named in the charges released by the United States Attorney Office in the Southern District of New York, regarding Michel's arrest.
"They talk about a highly regarded prospect from Atlanta," Hurt said. "Alabama signed one kid from Atlanta, so it's not rocket science to put the two together."
According to Hurt, Sexton may be allowed to practice.
"If (compliance) thinks he's ineligible, then no he won't practice. But I don't know that they have any reason to think he's ineligible."
