Warrant: Agent provided over $20K to ex-UNC player
HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — Investigators say a Georgia-based sports agent violated sports agent laws by providing more than $20,000 in cash and benefits to former Tar Heels receiver Greg Little in 2010, the Associated Press is reporting.
In a search warrant unsealed this week, an agent with the Secretary of State’s office said Little told investigators that Terry Watson of the Watson Sports Agency provided him with a monthly cash allowance of $2,200 in addition to travel expenses and other payments.
Little, now with the Cleveland Browns, also reimbursed former tutor Jenifer Wiley for expenses paid on his behalf with money received from Watson or a financial adviser, according to a probable cause affidavit in the June search warrant.
While the NCAA investigation is closed, authorities are still reviewing whether laws regulating sports agents were broken.
