University officials announced Tuesday that they have received a notice of inquiry from the NCAA about the investigation into the North Carolina football program.
The letter comes just two weeks short of a year since the investigation began in June 2010, when NCAA officials first contacted the University via phone. The NCAA did not say why there was a delay in sending the letter.
The University has yet to receive a notice of allegations.
“In the event allegations related to possible major violations of NCAA legislation are substantiated, the Committee on Infractions will consider the case either through the summary disposition or hearing process,” the letter reads.
The notice said that the NCAA enforcement staff plans to finish the investigation this month.
