RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Investigators from the North Carolina Secretary of State's office have met with Tar Heels defensive tackle Marvin Austin as they probe whether the state's sports agents laws have been broken.
Christopher Lyons, Austin's attorney, confirmed that Austin met with investigators for several hours Friday. Lyons said Austin is "fully cooperating," but he would not comment on specifics of the meeeting.
A spokeswoman for the Secretary of State's office declined to comment on the meeting.
The probe began in the wake of an NCAA investigation into whether Austin and receiver Greg Little received improper benefits from agents. That has since expanded to include possible academic misconduct involving a tutor.
