Former Agent Admits Paying College Players (14:21)

Josh Luchs, a former sports agent, admits to paying college football players early in his career (14:21)

A former sports agent who admitted paying college football players in the 1990s told ESPN Radio's "Mike and Mike in the Morning" that the NFL Players Association, the NCAA and state law enforcement agencies need to do more to stop agents from recruiting players with money and gifts. In a story appearing in the Oct. 18 issue of Sports Illustrated, Josh Luchs said he paid more than 30 players from 1990 to '96, including many who didn't sign with him. Luchs told Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic that the NFLPA has been "ineffective" in curbing agents who pay players and needs to work together with the NCAA and states with agent laws on the books to prevent the practice.
