Official statement by the University of Arizona on the FBI's basketball investigation:

"We were made aware of the Department of Justice's investigation this morning and we are cooperating fully with the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's office. Men's basketball assistant coach Emanuel Richardson was immediately suspended and relieved of all duties. 

"We were appalled to learn of the allegations as they do not reflect the standards we hold ourselves to and require from our colleagues. The University of Arizona has a strong culture of compliance and the expectation is we follow the rules."
