Willingham will not be witness at senate hearings on athlete welfare
North Carolina whistleblower Mary Willingham told CBSSports.com she will not be testifying at next week's hearings regarding NCAA student-athlete welfare.
North Carolina whistleblower Mary Willingham told CBSSports.com Saturday she will not be a witness at next week’s senate committee hearings on the welfare of NCAA athletes.
Willingham said she was notified Friday by a person from U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. Committee chair Jay Rockefeller IV (D-West Virginia) had called the hearings for Wednesday.
“They basically explained they organize a lineup and they decide who’s going to go,” Willingham said.
On Thursday, a commerce committee spokesman said the lineup of witnesses had not been finalized. Willingham said she would go to the Washington, D.C., hearings anyway as an observer.
“It’s important to me,” she said.
Willingham recently resigned at the University of North Carolina citing a hostile work environment. The former athletic academic advisor at the school has alleged she was dealing with athletes who were reading at barely literate levels.
A call to a commerce committee spokesman seeking comment was not immediately returned.
