Former North Carolina Assistant Coach John Blake Had Sports Agent On Speed Dial

[HT: Raleigh News Observer, Charlotte Observer]

More news from agent gate in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Ken Tysiac of the Charlotte Observer and Robbi Pickeral of the Raleigh News Observer did some digging and found that former North Carolina associate head coach John Blake, who resigned Sunday, had many conversations with sports agent Gary Wichard. 61 communications during a two month period.

You can read the report by clicking on the link below.

Marvin Austin, Greg Little, Deunta Williams, Kendric Burney, Bruce Carter and Quan Sturdivant were all making their decision to stay or go pro during that time. This doesn't look real good.

North Carolina head coach Butch Davis said he had no idea about the communications. Tar Heel fans you better hope that's the case.

North Carolina athletic director Dick Baddour did discuss those communications with John Blake but wouldn't go into detail.
Those of us at the OSG HQ feel agent gate and tutor gate at UNC keeps getting uglier.
