North Carolina again faces NCAA ex­tra-ben­e­fits charge

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

RALEIGH, N.C. | The NCAA has once again re­vamped its charges against North Carolina in the school’s mul­ti­year aca­demic case, lead­ing univer­sity of­fi­cials to openly ques­tion the fair­ness of the process.

On Thurs­day, the school re­leased a third No­tice of Al­le­ga­tions (NOA) from the NCAA that in­cluded charg­ing the school with pro­vid­ing im­proper ex­tra ben­e­fits af­ter with­draw­ing a sim­i­lar charge last spring. The Dec. 13 no­tice re­worded the charge that had been re­moved from the first ver­sion filed in May 2015 cen­ter­ing on ath­letes’ ac­cess to ir­reg­u­lar cour­ses on the Chapel Hill cam­pus.

First tied to con­duct by aca­demic coun­selors, the charge now fo­cuses on two for­mer staffers in that depart­ment while also cit­ing them for vi­o­lat­ing “prin­ci­ples of eth­i­cal con­duct.”
