A long-time friend of former Memphis Tigers basketball coach Josh Pastner is accusing him of under reporting rule violations to the NCAA, CBS Sports reported. The players are suspended indefinitely by the school.

However, Bell said he also spent about $500 on groceries for the players, and he provided photo evidence of Okogie and Jackson in his swimming pool.

Perhaps most importantly, Bell said Pastner, the ACC Coach of the Year last season, "100 percent" knew that Jackson and Okogie were with him in Tucson.

Through the report Bell is asked if he ever provided benefits to Memphis players. We'll practice, and I'm not going to change anything unless I'm told otherwise. Whatever it takes, ' " Bell told Parrish.

Reportedly a 51-year-old recovering addict who spent almost four years in prison, Bell told CBS he had a heated exchange with Pastner over the issue.

Parrish's report details a relationship between Pastner and Bell that spans decades but recently had a falling out. He said Pastner didn't call him on his birthday this year, which is something he interpreted as disrespectful.

According to Georgia Tech, Pastner had no knowledge of the improper benefits until October 2 when he immediately reported them to to the university's compliance office. I said, 'Josh, I don't make threats. So Bell said he canceled the tickets, and Crawford never actually made the trip.

Paster and Georgia Tech are in China preparing for their season-opener against UCLA.

Pastner released a statement saying, "As I have throughout my career, I remain committed to following NCAA rules".
