ESPN has issued a pair of corrections regarding the date that Arizona Wildcats men's basketball coach Sean Miller allegedly discussed a $100,000 payment to prized recruit and UA star freshman Deandre Ayton.
On Sunday, ESPN issued a correction, stating that the call took place in the spring of 2016. Another correction soon followed, with ESPN simply reporting that "the call in question was made in 2016" without noting when in 2016 the call was made.
The corrections were the first in two months posted on ESPN's Corrections page, and the first of the 2018 calendar year.
Miller did not coach in Arizona's game at Oregon on Saturday night, but Ayton was allowed to play. In a statement Sunday, the attorney conducting UA's internal investigation in an ongoing FBI probe said claims against Ayton are "false and unfounded," and he should remain eligible to play for UA.
