This story is going to get bigger before it disappears: UNC uncovered academic infractions and is holding a press conference Thursday night to address the issue.
A report from Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill’s WTVD says multiple players on the football team are involved, with other sources placing the number as high as nine (or higher). ESPN’s Joe Schad believes the investigation centers around whether players “including standouts” had papers written by a former tutor.
Head coach Butch Davis previously coached at Miami and endured the wrath of the NCAA although it wasn’t his fault. His predecessor Dennis Erickson committed several violations and the team was banned from postseason. In late 2006, Davis came to a struggling UNC program and led them to bowl games in 2008 and 2009.
