Share

Three people with knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press on Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017, that the NCAA infractions panel handling North Carolina's multi-year academic case plans to release its report Friday.

Still, the problems were well chronicled by Kane and in reports issued by the University of North Carolina previously, describing 18 years of sub-standard classes which required no attendance and, in many cases, relatively little work.

"While student-athletes likely benefited from the courses, so did the general student body", said Sankey. Investigators first arrived at UNC more than seven years ago in a football probe that ultimately spawned into this case focused on irregular courses featuring significant athlete enrollments.

Sometimes, members of the school's academic services even suggested grades that would keep athletes eligible.

North Carolina has maintained that the NCAA has no jurisdiction over this academic matter, and has denied that student-athletes received impermissible benefits due to the fact that the classes in question were offered to the entire student body.

The allegations included a lack of institutional control, failure to monitor, and extra benefits in association with the courses. Two other charges pertained to former department chair/professor Julius Nyang'oro and former student services manager Deborah Crowder failing to cooperate with the NCAA enforcement staff requests - violating the NCAA principles of ethical conduct.

"Based on the general availability and the lack of specific examples, the panel can not conclude a systemic effort to impermissibly benefit student-athletes", it said.

The case has been of particular interest to Syracuse fans, largely due to the NCAA investigation that the SU basketball program endured.
