Text messages from Kansas Jayhawks basketball coaches Bill Self and Kurtis Townsend to former Adidas consultant Thomas T.J. Gassnola took center stage Monday as a federal court case into college basketball corruption winds down.
Gassnola reiterated Monday that KUs basketball coaches had no knowledge of his payments to families of two KU players. However, text conversations were presented as evidence by the defense in an effort to show KUs staff knew about Gassnolas involvement in recruiting players to the Jayhawks.
The text messages were shown on a screen in the New York courtroom. No recording devices are allowed in the court.
