New York grand jury subpoenas Oklahoma State for NCAA violations records

A New York grand jury has subpoenaed Oklahoma State search for records of NCAA rule violations.

The Oklahoman’s Nolan Clay and Randy Ellis report the subpoena is a result of the emerging scandal involving former Cowboys assistant coach Lamont Evans and allegedly taking bribes to steer athletes to certain financial advisors.

The jury is requesting extensive information since Jan. 1, 2014. Among the items being sought  include text messages, social media messages, computer records, the personnel file of Evans, and all documents and communications pertaining to financial aid for all current student athletes on Oklahoma State’s men’s basketball team.

The subpoena also demands the records of all communication between the athletics staff and the parents of current members of the team.

Oklahoma State will have to gather all the evidence and turn it in by Oct. 17, or have a representative from the school prepared to testify in New York on that date.
