Judith Brame was ecstatic when Michael Abraham was hired in 1995, believing he was "the whole package," a charismatic coach who could turn around the Cal State Northridge women's basketball team.

Abraham was arrested Tuesday night by the FBI and charged with conspiracy to distribute at least 50 grams of crack cocaine. If convicted, he faces a maximum term of life in prison.
