OSU Associate Head Basketball Coach Turns Self In

The other coaches charged are Anthony "Tony" Bland, from the University of Southern California; Lamont Evans, from Oklahoma State University and formerly the University of SC; and Emanuel "Book" Richardson, from the University of Arizona.

"As we have already stated, we will cooperate with federal officials and coordinate with the NCAA as we move forward with looking into this matter to the fullest extent".

Person, 53, was a two-time All-American at Auburn and became its all-time scoring leader.

"The University is aware that former assistant men's basketball coach Lamont Evans has been charged by federal prosecutors and learned of the charge from a press release issued by the Department of Justice". Others included managers, financial advisers and representatives of a major global sportswear company.

Evans makes $150,000 a year as the assistant basketball coach.

Underwood and Evans also spent five seasons together on Frank Martin's staffs at Kansas State and SC.

He was retained and elevated to associate head coach by current Oklahoma State head coach Mike Boynton. They also said the university maintains high standards of conduct, and that deviation from those standards would not be tolerated. Evans was involved in an investigation into bribes from personal managers to influence players to sign with them.

Underwood, now the head coach at IL, hired Evans as his assistant and recruiting coordinator when he was named head coach at Oklahoma State in 2016 following the firing of Travis Ford. "These are serious accusations that are not consistent with University of SC values".

"We are committed to playing by the rules, and that's what we expect from our coaches", he said. Evans, a Bahamas native, was told to surrender his passport. Court documents show he took at least $22,000 in bribe money to direct basketball players to financial advisers. He is accused of paying a coach to pay a player to sign with his school.

They were among 10 people charged in New York City federal court. According to the complaint, about a month before Evans left SC, he met with financial advisers and National Basketball Association agents.

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