Korean Basketball League Coach Under Investigation In Match-Fixing Probe
Published March 6, 2013
INVESTIGATION LAUNCHED: YONHAP reported the KBL said "it has launched its own investigation into allegations that an active head coach was involved in a match-fixing scheme." The league said that it will "ask the coach’s team to verify facts surrounding the fixing allegations." If the allegations are proven true, the coach "would become the first active head coach of a South Korean professional team to be directly involved in fixing schemes." The KBL said that if the head coach admits to his illegal activities, it will "immediately open discussions for punishments" (YONHAP, 3/5). In Seoul, Lee Ah-ran reported a professional basketball coach has "denied allegations" of illegal match-fixing. In an interview with Yonhap News, the coach "only identified as K," said that he "hadn’t been approached to illegally rig matches, and had not received money to do fix games" (KOREA HERALD, 3/5).
