Under-the-radar ‘freelancers’ a main source of college corruption

Imagine you are an investigator in the NCAA’s Agent, Gambling and Amateurism division and you stumble upon O-D Life, a company based in Myrtle Beach, S.C., that claims on its Web site to offer “exclusive client management” to athletes.

The company is operated by Matt Whittier and appears to be a one-stop concierge business for professional athletes. Among the services that O-D Life claims to offer: “Business Management & Development,” “Wealth Management,” “High-Profile Investments,” “Public Relations & Marketing Services,” “NFL Rules Advisement” and “Family & Substance Abuse Counseling.”
