A lawyer says former Oklahoma State basketball coach Lamont Evans plans to plead guilty to a conspiracy bribery charge, according to the Associated Press.

Johnny McCray, one of Evans’ attorneys, said his client will plead guilty Wednesday in New York federal court. Evans will be the third assistant coach to plead guilty to the same charges.

McCray said Evans will admit accepting $22,000 in bribes to steer OSU and South Carolina players to certain financial advisers and business managers. The sentencing deal with prosecution calls for two years in prison, McCray said. Evans also will forfeit $22,000.
