Richardson is now “suspended and relieved of all duties” and he has been arrested. He received several charges due to his scheming, including fraud and bribery, but the Wildcats have resumed practicing.

An undercover agent was asked to give the $15,000 to Quinerly to secure his spot on the Wildcats.
