According to a report by The Oklahoman, Oklahoma State has received a subpoena from the New York grand jury regarding the investigate of bribery by former associate head basketball coach Lamont Evans.

The subpoena requires that OSU hand over all requested information and evidence to a New York FBI agent by next Tuesday, October 17 or have a representative of the university appear in person in New York at that time to testify.

The subpoena is far-reaching in the types of records being demanded, requesting emails, text messages, cellular phone records, social media messages, computer records and a host of other documents and electronic records covering the time period from Jan. 1, 2014 to the present. [NewOK]

According to report, the FBI is even demanding hand-written notes, financial aid documents, personnel information about Evans and “all documents and communications regarding actual or potential NCAA rules violations relating to the receipt of money, travel, in-kind benefits or services by OSU players and coaches associated with the men’s basketball team …”

It was reported previously that Mike Boynton is not believed to be implicated in any part of the alleged wrongdoing by Evans (he said last Thursday he has slept well). But the FBI, as should be expected, is going to be thorough. The ripples from this investigation will be far-reaching. This is just another step in the long process to reaching a resolution.
