UNC leaders hope charges will deter rogue sports agents

UNC system President Tom Ross said Friday that the decision by Orange County authorities to charge a sports agent accused of providing student athletes with improper benefits will hopefully deter the practice. Earlier this week, sports agent Terry Watson of Marietta, Ga., was charged with 13 counts of providing illegal benefits to three former UNC football players -- Greg Little, Marvin Austin and Robert Quinn.
