NCAA reopening North Carolina academic investigation

The NCAA announced Monday afternoon that it will reopen its investigation into academic irregularities at North Carolina.

Here is the NCAA statement on the University Of North Carolina, Chapel Hill:

“The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, was cited by the Division I Committee on Infractions in 2012 for violations in its athletics program, including academic misconduct. As with any case, the NCAA enforcement staff makes clear it will revisit the matter if additional information becomes available. After determining that additional people with information and others who were previously uncooperative might be willing to speak with the enforcement staff, the NCAA has reopened its investigation. The enforcement staff is exploring this new information to ensure an exhaustive investigation is conducted based on all available information. The NCAA will not comment further to protect the integrity of the investigation.”

This comes after former basketball player Rashad McCants leveled more academic accusations at his former school and said that head basketball coach Roy Williams was aware of the improprieties. Williams has denied McCants’ claims.
