Report: Mike Boynton Expected to Remain Head Coach at Oklahoma State



Even with an FBI investigation that brought down OSU associate head coach Lamont Evans this week, Oklahoma State is expected to stick with new head coach Mike Boynton according to a report from the Tulsa World‘s Mark Cooper.

Evans, who was Boynton’s associate head coach, was fired for cause on Thursday. Prior to his termination, Evans was placed on suspension stemming from an FBI investigation which alleged he accepted at least $22,000 in bribe money to “exert his influence over certain student athletes” at Oklahoma State and his previous employer South Carolina.

Although a recruit and player were linked in the court documents released this week, no players are expected to be held out when the team convenes for its first practice of the fall on Friday.

“The source indicated Boynton isn’t believed to be connected to the allegations against Evans,” Cooper reported.

Evans is facing six charges: conspiracy to commit bribery, solicitation of bribes and gratuities by an agent of a federally funded organization, conspiracy to commit honest services fraud, honest wire services fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and Travel Act conspiracy.

Evans was released on a $50,000 bond on Wednesday after an appearance in U.S. District Court, and is scheduled for a second hearing on Oct. 10 in New York.
