STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Boosters and assistant coaches at Oklahoma State handed out tens of thousands of dollars to players for at least a decade as the program grew into a national power, according to a Sports Illustrated article released Tuesday.
The article, which quoted several former players by name, said some players received $2,000 to $10,000 annually, with a few stars receiving $25,000 or more. Eight players told SI they received cash, while 29 others were named by teammates as taking money.
Oklahoma State said it has notified the NCAA about the report and launched its own investigation.
The 13th-ranked Cowboys play Saturday at home against Lamar.
