RALEIGH — Former associate head football coach at UNC, John Blake, has met with investigators from the state Secretary of State's office about an ongoing probe into agent-related activities with the football program.
"Coach Blake has been interviewed ... and has cooperated with them in response to a subpoena," Blake lawyer Wade Smith said.
He declined to comment on when the interview took place, what was said or how long it took.
Blake resigned after UNC's loss to LSU in the season opening game, saying he didn't want to be a distraction.
The Secretary of State's office oversees agent activity in North Carolina. State law requires agents to be registered with the state.
Blake has been under scrutiny because of his long-standing ties to high-profile sports agent Gary Wichard. Documents say the two worked together earlier this decade when Blake was out of coaching. About a dozen players coached by Blake have signed with Wichard over the years.
Smith has declined to comment on whether Blake received money from Wichard while coaching, calling that a "complicated" question.
