UNC’s top administrators are defending the school’s football program to NCAA officials.
Chancellor Holden Thorp, departing athletic director Dick Baddour, and others from UNC traveled to Indianapolis Friday to testify before the NCAA Committee on Infractions.
Several UNC football players were caught last year cheating in classes and taking gifts from agents. The university has punished itself to try to avoid an even harsher crackdown from the NCAA.
The hearing was closed to the public, so it’s impossible to know exactly what was said. But WRAL reporter Erin Hartness was outside the hearing in Indianapolis, and she brings us up to date on what she learned.
