OSU assistant coach turns himself in after fraud allegations

The details will be discussed at a news conference on Tuesday afternoon. The Fighting Illini released a statement several hours after the news broke.

Evans, who has been coaching at Oklahoma State after leaving the staff of USC Head Basketball Coach Frank Martin a year ago, is facing accusations that he accepted at least $22,000 in bribes. When Underwood left for IL after last season, Evans was retained by new head coach and former SC player Mike Boynton. Evans and Underwood worked together for about a year at Oklahoma State before Underwood left for the IL job this past spring.

For now, the connection doesn't bring IL into what is sure to be a messy situation.

Prosecutors also indicted James Gatto, the Director of Global Marketing for Adidas. "In steering players to a financial adviser who it turns out who was actually working for the government".

"We are committed to playing by the rules, and that's what we expect from our coaches", he said. He is accused of paying a coach to pay a player to sign with his school. They also said the university maintains high standards of conduct, and that deviation from those standards would not be tolerated.

He admitted making payments and loans to NCAA athletes as far back as 2000 to get them to hire him.

Lamont Evans, whom Underwood hired at Oklahoma State, surrendered to federal marshals earlier Wednesday after the Federal Bureau of Investigation revealed a day earlier that they had uncovered a bribery scheme through a lengthy covert operation that involved four college basketball assistants and shoe companies.

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

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.

"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". "These are serious accusations that are not consistent with University of SC values".

The player's name was not released, but details in the criminal complaint make it clear investigators were referring to Brian Bowen, who did not return messages seeking comment.
