A Pennsylvania legislator said yesterday in Harrisburg he plans to introduce a bill that would require professional sports agents to register with the state and would prevent them from making agreements with student-athletes until graduation.
Rep. Nicholas Colafella (D-Beaver) said the proposals would be included in a three-bill package he will sponsor when the legislature returns to session next month.
The legislation would provide a fine of up to $50,000 and one year in jail for an agent who reaches an agreement with any ineligible student-athlete . . .
Agreement was reached giving the Texas attorney general access to information gathered by Methodist Church bishops about the Southern Methodist University football scandal, a probe court records indicate cost more than $500,000.
The court-approved agreement allows attorney general Jim Mattox's investigators to examine information compiled by the bishops about the pay-for-players football scandal that cost SMU its 1987 football season. The bishops' report on their inquiry was made public June 19. Under state law, the attorney general is charged with monitoring charitable trusts, such as SMU, to make certain that trust funds aren't mishandled.
Mattox has said he is particularly interested in money being paid to three former members of the athletic department at SMU. The bishops report said SMU paid more than $860,000 to former athletic director Bob Hitch, former football coach Bobby Collins and former assistant athletic director Henry Lee Parker.
