A former Georgia Tech assistant coach is being charged with NCAA Level I violations relating to an Atlanta strip-club visit that sources told ESPN included now-Chicago Bulls rookie Wendell Carter Jr. and former Georgia Tech and NBA player Jarrett Jack.
Jack, whom the NCAA declared to be a representative of Georgia Tech's athletics interests, is alleged to have provided Carter and an unidentified then-Tech player with $300 for the strip-club visit, the sources told ESPN.
The NCAA has notified Georgia Tech officials that the former assistant, Darryl LaBarrie; a booster the ESPN sources identified as Jack; and Ron Bell, a former friend of Yellow Jackets basketball coach Josh Pastner, are being charged with multiple alleged rules violations, including Level I violations, which are the most serious under NCAA rules.
Longtime NBA veteran Jarrett Jack is alleged to have provided then-high school recruit and now Bulls rookie Wendell Carter Jr. and a then-Georgia Tech player with $300 during an Atlanta strip-club visit, sources say.
LaBarrie is also accused of providing false and misleading information to NCAA investigators and Georgia Tech officials regarding his knowledge of the alleged incident.
