North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall today launched an investigation into possible improprieties by sports agents in the state. Spokesman George Jeter said the department hasn't received a complaint but is responding to media reports of possible NCAA violations that may have been caused by improper contact between agents and college athletes. "That's it, precisely," Jeter said. "The number of media reports coming out and talking about possibly things that might have happened and possibly actions by agents, or people who should be agents if they're not, [sparked the investigation]."NC Secretary of State starts agent probe.
