Thorp: UNC will wait to respond to allegations
CHAPEL HILL (WTVD) -- UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp says UNC will wait to respond to NCAA allegations of academic misconduct and accusations that football players got perks from professional sports agents.
Thorp made brief remarks Thursday about the allegations and the upcoming October hearing in Indianapolis before the UNC Board of Governors went into a closed session.
The Chancellor just returned from a collegiate sports reform retreat sponsored by the NCAA in Indianapolis. The retreat was designed to address issues like academic success and integrity, which have plagued some Division I schools.
The deadline for UNC to respond to the NCAA allegations is September 19 and Thorp says UNC will wait until that time to respond.
