Marvin Austin Subpoenaed by N.C. Investigators

It looks like the NCAA isn’t the only organization interested in talking to Marvin Austin, according to the AP.

Investigators from the North Carolina Secretary of State’s office have subpoenaed Tar Heels defensive tackle Marvin Austin, a person with knowledge of the situation said Friday.

Secretary of State Elaine Marshall isn’t saying anything officially — as you might expect with an ongoing investigation — but this appears to indicate her office’s inquiry into agent dealings with Austin and other players is very much alive. The investigation was launched when the “AgentGate” scandal broke, prompting N.C. to dust off its little-used law against illegal agent activity.

It’s impossible to know, of course, whether this means that investigators have any tangible leads — or even if the probe will last beyond Marshall’s campaign for U.S. Senate. But they’re probably not subpoenaing Austin just to see how he’s doing after his suspension from the team.
