After more than a year and a half long investigation into the North Carolina football program, the NCAA will announce its Committee on Infractions report today at 3 p.m.
On June 21, 2011 the NCAA issued UNC a notice of allegations that outlined nine major violations covering a range of issues from improper benefits to inappropriate relationships with agents.
In its Sept. 19 response, the University instituted a new social media policy alongside strict self-imposed sanctions. The football team vacated all wins from the 2008 and 2009 seasons and decreased the number of scholarships by nine over a three-year period. The University also issued itself a fine of $50,000.
But today’s announcement could result in additional sanctions for the UNC football program.
Chancellor Holden Thorp, former athletic director Dick Baddour, and other representatives from the UNC athletic department went before the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Oct. 28 to discuss the allegations.
