Players told to leave Whitney

Several additional South Carolina football players moved out of a Columbia hotel Thursday evening a week after NCAA officials investigated whether some players received discounted rates or made any payments at all to live there for extended stays.
USC coach Steve Spurrier said school officials have asked players to move out of the Whitney Hotel and settle any outstanding bills with the hotel along Devine Street.
NCAA investigators interviewed a number of players last week about their living arrangements at the Whitney, a hotel that features limousine service and has housed Spurrier and other USC coaches in the past.
Spurrier said he was aware players were living at the hotel but "didn't know all the arrangements."
"But all of our guys are going to pay their bill and hopefully go live somewhere else," Spurrier said. "That's what we hope happens that they pay their bills up and go live somewhere else. That's about all I can say about it."
