North Carolina re­ceives third No­tice of Al­le­ga­tions

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. | North Carolina has re­ceived a third No­tice of Al­le­ga­tions from the NCAA out­lin­ing vi­o­la­tions con­nected to its multi-year aca­demic fraud scan­dal.

UNC spokesman Rick White said in state­ment Wed­nes­day that the univer­sity will pub­licly re­lease the doc­u­ment but didn’t spec­ify when. The state­ment didn’t com­ment on any changes com­pared to two ear­lier ver­sions, both of which in­cluded five se­ri­ous charges cen­tered around years of ir­reg­u­lar cour­ses fea­tur­ing sig­nif­i­cant ath­lete en­roll­ments of­fered by a depart­ment.

The NCAA first filed charges in May 2015, then sent a re­vised no­tice in April. Both ver­sions charged UNC with lack of in­sti­tu­tional con­trol in a case that grew as an off­shoot of a 2010 probe into the foot­ball pro­gram.

In­side Carolina first re­ported the ar­rival of a third NOA, fur­ther slow­ing a case al­ready crawl­ing to­ward res­o­lu­tion. For the third time, UNC will face a 90-day dead­line to file a re­sponse be­fore even­tu­ally hav­ing a hear­ing with an in­frac­tions com­mit­tee panel and later a rul­ing or po­ten­tial penal­ties.
