Investigators interview NFL agent
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Investigators with the North Carolina Secretary of State's office have interviewed NFL agent Gary Wichard as part of their probe into whether the state's sports agent laws were broken.
ESPN.com's Heather Dinich and Andrea Adelson write about all things ACC in the conference blog.
His attorney Howard Silber said Tuesday night that Wichard spoke to the investigators via teleconference for roughly two hours earlier that day but declined further comment.
Elaine Marshall's office launched its probe in July, shortly after the NCAA began investigating the football program at North Carolina. The NCAA's probe initially focused on agent-related benefits but expanded to include possible academic violations involving a tutor.
Wichard's longtime friendship with former Tar Heels assistant coach John Blake has been a key part of the investigations.
