Fmr. USC Assistant Coach Makes First Court Appearance

Oklahoma State University									SOURCE Oklahoma State University

In return, Evans is accused of steering star players toward those men.

Prosecutors said Gatto and others funneled $100,000 from Adidas, identified as "Company-1", to the family of an elite high school prospect so he would play at an Adidas-sponsored school matching the description of the University of Louisville.

"We are committed to playing by the rules, and that's what we expect from our coaches", he said. "Until today we don't believe they were aware of this investigation".

Athletic Director Mike Holder said in a statement Wednesday OSU was working with federal authorities and would "coordinate with the NCAA as we move forward with looking into this matter to the fullest extent".

"We were surprised to learn this morning of potential actions against one of our assistant basketball coaches by federal officials". Blazer, accused by the Securities and Exchange Commission of taking money from clients without permission, pleaded guilty this month to fraud and other crimes.

They said the probe has revealed numerous instances of bribes paid by athlete advisers, including financial advisers and associate basketball coaches, to assistant and associate basketball coaches to exert influence over student athletes.

"They ignored red flags, seeing only the green of the cash bribes flowing their way", Kim said.

They said Person also claimed to pay $18,500 of that sum to two players' families.

"Evans is reported to have been recorded in a phone interview on April 5 saying "(A player) is going to come back to school. That's what he says.

Evans' next hearing is October 10 in NY.

If Evans were terminated after Saturday, then, it would seem Oklahoma State could owe him another month's salary - $50,000. The document alleges Evans was paid $2,000 - part of more than $22,000 he was paid - after the meeting created to steer Carroll, who Evans described as "one of the best (NBA) prospects", to use the Blazer's services in the future. I'm going to put you in place with (Blazer) through me and our relationship, so he can help you do what he's - this is not a basketball agent.

Another instance in May had Evans being mentioned about taking money for the 2018 National Basketball Association draft.

First-year IL men's basketball coach Brad Underwood says he was "surprised" after the FBI made its covert bribery investigation public.

"It has no place in college sports".
