LOS ANGELES (AP) -A former associate of NBA star O.J. Mayo has told Yahoo! Sports that Southern California basketball coach Tim Floyd paid a man who helped get Mayo to play for the Trojans.
In a story posted Tuesday night at Yahoo! Sports, Louis Johnson, the former associate of Mayo's, said Rodney Guillory told him that Floyd had given Guillory ``a grand.'' Johnson said he was able to view $100 bills inside an envelope Guillory had.
Johnson said the payment occurred in 2007.
Yahoo! Sports reported Johnson has told NCAA investigators and federal authorities - including the FBI, IRS and U.S. Attorney's Office - that Floyd paid Guillory.
Last year, Johnson accused Guillory of providing Mayo with improper benefits while the guard played for USC.
