The college basketball scandal that’s reached schools including Duke, North Carolina and Michigan State has reached the University of Arizona.

On Friday, ESPN reported an FBI wiretap found a conversation between head coach Sean Miller and an employee of a sports agent at the center of the investigation.

They were reportedly discussing a $100,000 payment to make sure star freshman Deandre Ayton signed with the Arizona Wildcats.

Miller did not coach Saturday’s game against Oregon.
