While it's not the FBI that's conducting this particular investigation, rather a separate law firm, it still all centers around the bombshell that was dropped back in September.

The university announced the move Wednesday, a day after Person and seven others were indicted by a federal grand jury in New York City.

An Auburn spokesperson told ESPN that Person, Auburn's all-time leading scorer, no longer works at the university; Bland is on administrative leave, and Evans and Richardson have been fired. I am no more concerned than anybody else.

Auburn opens the 2017-18 season against Norfolk State at 7 p.m. Friday at Auburn Arena.

"It's an ongoing investigation and everybody is working to get our players certified and eligible". And you guys know, from the very beginning, I'm not allowed to comment on the process.

The school says he was sacked on October 18.

The indictments Tuesday largely mirror charges brought in October alleging that the four coaches received kickbacks from agents, money advisers and clothing-giant execs for steering their players to them for lucrative deals.

"From the moment I met Coach Pearl and heard his vision for our basketball program, it was clear he's the right man at the right time for Auburn", said athletics director Jay Jacobs at the time of his hiring. It is moving along at a pretty quick pace.

Those attorneys have reportedly not been able to determine if Pearl has committed any NCAA violations because the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized his computers and cellphones as part of the agency's own wide-ranging probe into corruption in college basketball. The Tigers have gone 44-54 in the three years since then and have yet to make the postseason.

Pearl was sacked as the University of Tennessee's head basketball coach in 2011 after lying to the NCAA about recruitment violations he and his staff committed.
