7v7 Coach Common Link to AU and MSU NCAA Investigations

There are two stories out there sharing a common person of interest in ongoing NCAA investigations into both MSU and Auburn: Nashville-based 7v7 coach Byron De'Vinner.

As you'll recall, Jovon Robinson was ruled ineligible at Auburn for the falsification of his transcript by counselor Valerie Starks-Sykes, who admitted to having made the changes and resigned rather than accept a suspension. She refused to provide Memphis City Schools with a motivation for altering the transcript, other than to say she was "certain someone had asked her to make the changes."

Over at MSU, a booster has been disassociated and the wide receiver's coach "resigned" shortly after the season began due to "personal reasons." The player in question at MSU is Will Redmond, another Memphis-based player who had connections to De'Vinner. Pure speculation is that they were on the same 7v7 team and De'Vinner was acting as the handler for both players. De'Vinner's story in YahooSports, claims MSU wanted him to take the fall for the payments/benefits given to Will Redmond and he refused.

This does bring a brighter spotlight on 7v7 tourneys happening nation-wide. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, but De'Vinner has gone on record with YahooSports (aka the investigative arm of the NCAA).
