I have received a lot of requests for the entire transcript of the November 12, 2007, interview between former Vashon High School basketball coach Floyd Irons and executive director of the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA), Kerwin Urhahn.
(To clarify: As part of Irons' plea agreement with the U.S. Attorney's office for his involvement in a real estate fraud scheme, Irons agreed to provide information involving recruiting violations to MSHSAA. Irons' attorney, Rick Sindel, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Hal Goldsmith sat in on the interview between Irons and Urhahn, as did FBI agent Shannon McGarry. Irons is questioned by Urhahn and McGarry about the residences of players found by Riverfront Times to be in violation of MSHSAA and St. Louis Public School district policies.)
Below you will find three PDFs containing the final 143 pages of the transcript. The names of the students have been blacked out by MSHSAA. Our chart of Vashon basketball players published back in November, 2006, provides a cheat sheet.
