Bomar's dad contacts UNT about son's future

DENTON – Jerry Bomar has spoken with North Texas assistant head coach Kenny Evans about the future of Bomar's son Rhett and the possibility of him playing for the Mean Green, Evans said Tuesday.

Evans spoke with Jerry Bomar shortly after his son and offensive lineman J.D. Quinn were dismissed from Oklahoma after a university investigation revealed the players were paid by Big Red Sports/Imports, a local car dealership, for work they did not perform last summer and fall. Evans advised the Bomars on the steps Rhett, who was the Sooners’ starting quarterback, should take while trying to resume his college football career.

Evans and UNT head coach Darrell Dickey both said they would be willing to consider Bomar continuing his career at UNT.

Jerry Bomar did not return a message seeking comment.

Bomar has yet to be released by Oklahoma, which could choose not to release him to a school on its upcoming schedule. UNT is scheduled to open the 2007 season at Oklahoma.

Both Dickey and Evans said UNT would have to investigate Bomar’s situation, his status with the NCAA and of his commitment to the Mean Green before accepting him as a transfer. The NCAA could suspend Bomar, reducing the amount of eligibility he has left, after he transfers to another member school.

Several schools have expressed interest in Bomar, including TCU. Frogs coach Gary Patterson said over the weekend that he was interested in Bomar and Quinn before saying Monday that he had changed his mind and could not take on either player.
