Creighton assistant men’s basketball Preston Murphy has been placed on administrative leave by the university.
The suspension follows a report from earlier today where Yahoo Sports identifies Murphy and Corey Barker of TCU as coaches who accepted $6,000 payments from middleman Christian Dawkins in the college basketball pay-for-play scandal.
Creighton Athletic Director Bruce Rasmussen released the following statement earlier this evening;
“Assistant men’s basketball coach Preston Murphy has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal review. We fully intend to cooperate with authorities but will not comment further on the continuing investigation given our policy of not discussing personnel matters.”
