Indiana youth coach charged with destroying evidence in Alabama baseball betting scandal
An Indiana man has been charged in connection with the University of Alabama baseball betting scandal that rocked the university last year.
Bert Neff, a youth baseball coach and businessman, was charged with destroying evidence, tampering with witnesses and providing false statements to authorities in an alleged inside information offense involving an April game between the Crimson Tide and LSU Tigers, according to a report from ESPN.
The scandal led to thefiring of Alabama head coach Brad Bohannonin May after the allegations surfaced, with the university stating he violated the standards, duties and responsibilities expected of university employees.
According to The Athletic, prosecutors in the Northern District of Alabama allege that Neff received text messages from someone identified as Individual 1 who was employed by the schools baseball team in documentstelling him that the Crimson Tides star starting pitcher would be out with an injury the next day.
A press release from the NCAAon Thursday states that Bohannon texted an individual he knew to be engaged in sports betting activities that his pitcher “is out for sure Lemme know when I can tell LSU Hurry.
Neff then forwarded that message to four unidentified sports bettors who put money on LSU to win the game.
After learning of the injury, Neff allegedly texted one of the gamblers that the bet was a 10000000000% winner.
