Report: Texas RB coach Larry Porter paid players while at Oklahoma State


Longhorns running backs coach and new UNC coach Larry Porter was implicated in the first of a five-part of installment from Sports Illustrated outlining the wrongdoing at Oklahoma State over the last 10-15 years. Porter was accused of paying players while serving as the Cowboys running backs coach from 2002-2004. 

Porter and former Oklahoma State assistant Joe DeForest, currently the special teams coordinator at West Virginia, were among those who reportedly compensated Cowboys athletes. 

Shady coach added to UNC staff while already on probation for John Blake, etc-

North Carolina is set to name former Texas assistant coach Larry Porter as its running backs coach and Arkansas state assistant coach Keith Heckendorf as its new quarterbacks coach, according to multiple sources. Porter, the former head coach at Memphis (’10-11), has worked as running backs coach at numerous BCS-level programs. He coached running backs at Texas last fall under Mack Brown. (Inside Carolina)

More of the same. Nothing will change until they get some type of meaningful punishment.

Never mind

clean in the coaching profession ) trusted him enough to hire him.

Bubba Cunningham should be fired. Running a renegade program the style of SMU is not becoming of any ACC school.


They are on probation til 2016 and still go out and hire 4-5 coaches directly related to the pay for play scandal at Oklahoma State. Unreal the stupidity of this bunch.

UNC is pretty much untouchable in regards to the NCAA. They will always only receive a slap on the wrist for any wrong doing, no matter how severe. It's just the way it is, that's why I laugh at all the people on the 40 some odd page thread about "the scandal". UNC knows they can do whatever they want, it's the others that are too slow to realize that.

They think they're above the law, and until the NCAA hammers them...they will continue to act that way.

Mack Brown paid more players in his tenure at UNC than Blake or Butch and Co. ever did. That is fact. Get Steve Logan and Mike O'Cain to comment on UNCs assistants paying aunts, uncles, high school coaches in the 90s. Mack Brown was as dirty as it gets. Logan has all but called Mack a cheater many of times and O'Cain has talked about it in private to many people.

This could be the dumbest hire ever, but one has to believe that Porter has been thoroughly vetted by Fedora and Cunningham. I know that has no traction here, but Carolina fans are not anxious to add to your joy. Porter had better be clean or we will never hear the end of it.

Wow, just another sign of lack of institutional control over at UNC.  It is extremely dangerous for them to hire a known cheater while UNC is still dealing with illegal payments to players, agents, academic fraud, etc.

That "being cleared" thing really worked out well for us in 1989.

They also probably got the "go ahead" from the NCAA.

That's what you said about John Blake. There are 120 running back coaches in America. Id be willing to guess less than 5% of those have EVER been implicated in paying players and/or cheating. Yet, UNC ignores the candidates with clean records and goes out and hires the crook? yet, another bag man? LOL.

Why would they operate any differently when there haven't been any real consequences?
NCAA has written them a blank check to do as they please.

That is why they don't care. They are arrogant and will do what they damn well please, and that includes perpetuating the same kind of corrupt behavior that brought them attention in the first place. If their worst punishment is a few people writing derogatory articles about them, they are willing to deal with that.

I'm guessing they did not consult the PR firm on this hire. Even if he was "cleared" (I have no idea), why even go there. RB coaches are not hard to find. Why hire one with a connection to a pay for play scandal?

Hey UNC, when you find yourself at the bottom of a deep hole the first course of action is to stop digging.
