UNC: school still awaiting NCAA ruling in academic case

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina says it is still awaiting a ruling from an NCAA infractions committee panel handling the school’s multi-year academic case.

In a statement Thursday, UNC spokesman Joel Curran says the school hasn’t received the public report that would include any potential penalties. Curran says it won’t come Friday due to “scheduling circumstances,” but didn’t elaborate further.

Curran says the school expects to learn about 24 hours in advance of the release.

In an email, NCAA spokeswoman Stacey Osburn says no infractions announcement is scheduled for Friday but didn’t elaborate further.

UNC appeared before the infractions panel in August in Nashville, Tennessee, for a two-day hearing. The case is focused on irregular courses featuring significant athlete enrollments and has led to five serious charges, including lack of institutional control.
