UNC expects to be working with NCAA investigators for at least a year, Chancellor Holden Thorp told UNC-system leaders Thursday.
The individual student-athletes’ fates will be resolved much faster but “we’re only a little bit of the way into the NCAA process,” Thorp told Board of Governors members.
Thorp and athletic director Dick Baddour also braced the board for more bad news as cases wrap up.
UNC-system policy on intercollegiate athletics
The Board of Governors has delegated the responsibility for intercollegiate athletics to the chancellors under the Code’s Delegation of Duty and Authority.
That delegation is subject to the requirements and mandates in this policy.

“I don’t want to appear before you and say everything’s going to be fine because some of that news is not going to be good,” Baddour said.
Thorp asked to update board members at every meeting until the investigation is over, UNC-system President Erskine Bowles said. Thorp took questions before the board moved into closed session to discuss the matter further.
