The school was among those impacted by the FBI in an investigation into bribery and corruption. Former Oklahoma State assistant coach Lamont Evans was arrested in September for allegedly taking bribes to steer players toward agents and advisers. He allegedly solicited $22,000 from two financial advisors to steer players to him. He was fired shortly after his arrest.
It’s unclear if Carroll is one of the players involved with Evans, but the university opted to suspend him during the review of the program. Carroll is the team’s leading returning scorer after averaging 17.5 points per game last season. He was an All-Big 12 preseason selection.
