Ex-Oklahoma State Coach Lamont Evans Sentenced to Three Months in Prison

Bleacher Report

Former Oklahoma State Cowboys and South Carolina Gamecocks assistant basketball coach Lamont Evans received a three-month prison sentence Friday for accepting bribes to push players toward certain managers and financial advisers. 

Larry Neumeister of the Associated Press reported U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos also ordered Evans to forfeit $22,000 and work 100 hours of community service during the sentencing in New York City.

The 41-year-old former Drake University guard called it "one of the saddest days of my life" as he exited the courtroom after telling Ramos he found "an easy way to make money," per Neumeister.

"In hindsight and upon reflection, I knew that it was wrong," Evans said.

He pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit bribery in January after admitting he accepted $22,000 in bribes during his time at Oklahoma State and South Carolina.
