Clandestine video played in federal court on Wednesday showed convicted felon Christian Dawkins — in a discussion with FBI agents — sharing his belief that Arizona coach Sean Miller cheated while recruiting players.
"And the the thing with [former Arizona assistant] Book [Richardson], Arizona is like, Sean Miller has to know everything that's going on," Dawkins is heard saying on the FBI's video capture. "I can call Sean and have a conversation like, this is whats going on. Like, this is what's needing to be done."
Dawkins goes on to say Miller would "talk on the phone about" illegally recruiting players.
The video was played as the government's key witness, Marty Blazer, continued to face direct examination from the prosecution. As the video was run for the jury, with a corresponding transcript provided for them to read, Blazer was asked what he thought Dawkins was saying as the two met — with others — to discuss business in New York on a yacht back in June 2017.
