North Carolina to get NCAA penalties
Less than a year after being notified by the NCAA of allegations, the Tar Heels will find out their football program's fate
Eight months after firing its coach; nine months after receiving its letter of inquiry, North Carolina will receive its final verdict Monday from the NCAA.
The infractions committee will announce its findings in the wide-ranging case during a 3 p.m. conference call on Monday.
To refresh, the case involved academic fraud, unethical conduct and impermissible benefits given to athletes. Former assistant John Blake was fired after working with agent Gary Wichard (since deceased) and working out players in the offseason.
There were allegations of academic fraud involving a tutor as well as a failure to monitor charge against the school. The NCAA says that the school did not adequately monitor Chris Hawkins, a former Tar Heel player who was basically defined as a runner by the NCAA. Also, the school did not properly oversee the social media activity of the football team.
Head coach Butch Davis was fired in July. He was not named in the notice of allegations or the official letter of inquiry.
