Ex-USC assistant charged in corruption probe (Updated with USC statement)

Ex-USC assistant charged in corruption probe (Updated with USC statement)

Of course, we will cooperate with investigators and we look forward to justice being done in this case.

Other college coaches charged include Auburn assistant Chuck Person, Emanuel Richardson of Arizona and USC assistant Tony Bland.

Evans surrendered to federal marshals early Wednesday on federal corruption charges following an investigation into the criminal influence of money on coaches and players in the NCAA. Also charged are men affiliated with the sportswear company Adidas, including the Global Direct of Marketing for Basketball Jim Gatto, Merl Code and Jonathan Brand Augustine.

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.

According to court documents, Evans said it was necessary to use his influence over the youngsters early in their college careers because many of them are "one and done", meaning they play one year of college ball before joining the National Basketball Association.

Federal prosecutors said at least three top high school recruits were promised payments of as much as $150,000, using money supplied by Adidas, to attend two universities sponsored by the athletic shoe company.

Evans is suspended with pay.

The EIA also said total domestic crude oil output rose by 157,000 barrels a day to 9.510 million barrels a day. WTI's front-month contract was up $0.15, or 0.3%, at $50.06 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Is Vladimir Putin Behind Kim Jong-un's Latest Missile Threat?
Mattis told reporters that he believed diplomacy and sanctions were so far succeeding in putting more pressure on Pyongyang. Many analysts expect North Korea to dominate Trump΄s speech on Tuesday night at the UN General Assembly.

Evans was named to the Oklahoma State staff a month later, on April 4.

As of Tuesday, Boynton had yet to sign his head coaching contract, a university official told the News Press.

Evans coached at Carolina from 2012 to 2016 before taking the Oklahoma State job in April of previous year.

The scheme involved Evans allegedly taking bribes from these advisers to get his players to sign with their agencies. "These are serious accusations that are not consistent with University of SC values".

"We have reached out to the NCAA", Kim said. Yet, none of the coaches, including Evans, told the players about what a Google search would have brought up.

Prosecutors said Person accepted $91,500 of bribes over 10 months from a financial adviser, who was secretly cooperating with prosecutors, in exchange for steering NBA-worthy Auburn players to hire the adviser and buy suits from Michel. His next appearance will be October 10 in NY.

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