North Carolina rul­ing set

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - SPORTS -

The NCAA in­frac­tions com­mit­tee panel han­dling North Carolina’s multi-year aca­demic case plans to re­lease its rul­ing Fri­day, three peo­ple with knowl­edge of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion said.

The peo­ple said the NCAA no­ti­fied par­ties in­volved in the case Thurs­day morn­ing. They spoke to The As­so­ci­ated Press on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause nei­ther the school nor the NCAA have com­mented pub­licly on the re­lease.

The rul­ing comes roughly eight weeks af­ter UNC ap­peared be­fore the in­frac­tions panel in Nashville, Tenn., for a two-day hear­ing that in­cluded Chan­cel­lor Carol Folt, ath­letic di­rec­tor Bubba Cun­ning­ham, men’s bas­ket­ball coach Roy Wil­liams, foot­ball coach Larry Fe­dora and women’s bas­ket­ball coach Sylvia Hatchell. The school faces five top-level charges, in­clud­ing lack of in­sti­tu­tional con­trol.

An NCAA spokes­woman said a me­dia ad­vi­sory would be sent on the morn­ing of an an­nounce­ment but had “noth­ing fur­ther to share be­fore then.” A UNC spokes­woman de­clined to com­ment.
