As scheduled, ex-MSU quarterback John Bond met with the FBI and a state regulator this afternoon in separate meetings, his attorney confirmed via e-mail. The attorney, Phil Abernethy, did not provide any details of the meetings.
“John Bond has been interviewed by a State regulator and Federal law enforcement,” Abernethy said in a statement. “He has fully cooperated with both agencies and has provided them all facts known by him. Due to the ongoing nature of these matters, he cannot comment further about either interview.”
Bond sparked the NCAA’s investigation into the recruitment of Auburn QB Cam Newton and has said that Newton’s father, Cecil, offered up his son’s services last year for $180,000. The man who Bond said relayed the offer was Kenny Rogers, a former teammate of Bond’s. Rogers and Cecil Newton are two of the principle characters of interest to the FBI (and the NCAA, of course).
Rogers was likely to met with the NCAA this week, according to reports.
Jody Wright, a GA assistant at Alabama and MSU’s director of football operations last year, was interviewed by the NCAA concerning Newton, according to the Tuscaloosa News.
