UNC will use full 90 days to respond to NCAA

Bookmark and Share

University of North Carolina officials plan to take the full 90 days allotted to them to respond to an NCAA Notice of Allegations charging the school with nine major violations, UNC chancellor Holden Thorp said this afternoon.

UNC’s written response to the NCAA is due Sept. 19, and school officials have an Oct. 28 meeting in front of the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions.

Thorp spoke publicly only for about 90 seconds in front of the UNC system Board of Governors Committee on University Governance this afternoon. Board of Governors members quickly went into closed session for the purpose of discussing personnel matters.

Fifteen days ago, Thorp fired UNC football coach Butch Davis with controversy over the violations continuing to grip the campus.

“I held a press conference about that, and I’ve talked to the media about that,” Thorp said this afternoon, “so I don’t have a great deal more to add about that in open session.”
