OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops is the latest person seeking change in how agents are involved in college basketball and the recruiting process.

At a fan event for Sooners fans on Thursday night, Stoops suggested that nothing will change in how agents are involved in college sports until the agents themselves are punished for breaking NCAA rules instead of schools. And he specifically suggested that “the NBA is not supporting NCAA basketball” and should take action to suspend agents who break the rules.

Oklahoma’s basketball program is currently under investigation by the NCAA to determine whether a player received an improper gift from a financial adviser.

Sooners basketball coach Jeff Capel called the agent issue “an epidemic.”
