NCAA Bribery Scandal: During his career, Chuck earned $22 million in salary. Unfortunately he found himself flat broke in the decades after retiring. Financial problems led Chuck to be involved with an infamous NCAA bribery scheme that netted him $91,500 in bribes. He plead guilty in March 2019 to accepting bribes in exchange for directing Auburn college players to use certain financial advisors. His attorney explained that Person found himself broke after giving much of his money away to charity and to an ex-wife who was entitled to $30,000 per month in alimony, an amount that was calculated when he was still an NBA star. Paperwork showed that he earned just $18,000 per year working with the Cavaliers. When he landed a job at Auburn, a bank garnished 25% of his wages to repay a loan on a failed business investment.
