NEW YORK — Former USC assistant basketball coach Tony Bland pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to commit bribery, admitting he accepted $4,100 in cash to steer players at the school to certain financial advisers and business managers.
Bland’s plea in Manhattan federal court makes it likely he will spend little or no time in prison after he is sentenced April 2.
“On July 29, 2017, I met with others in Las Vegas, Nevada, to discuss my participation in the scheme and received a payment of $4,100,” he told U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos.
