UNC ruling tomorrow

North Carolina to get ruling from NCAA infractions panel Friday
12:59 PM ET news services

The NCAA infractions committee panel handling North Carolina's multiyear academic case plans to release its ruling Friday, a source confirmed to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

The ruling comes roughly eight weeks after North Carolina appeared before the panel in August in Nashville, Tennessee, for a two-day hearing. The school faces five top-level charges, including lack of institutional control.

The oft-delayed case is focused on years of irregular courses requiring a research paper or two. Those courses typically offered high grades and featured significant athlete enrollments.

In mid-August, North Carolina chancellor Carol Folt, athletic director Bubba Cunningham, men's basketball coach Roy Williams and women's basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell attended both days of hearings before the infractions committee panel. Football coach Larry Fedora, who wasn't at North Carolina at the time in question, attended the first day.

While a ruling could provide resolution, the case could linger if North Carolina pursues an appeal or legal action in response to potential penalties. Such penalties could include fines, probation, postseason bans or vacated wins and championships.

In an email to the Associated Press, NCAA spokeswoman Stacey Osburn said the NCAA would send out a media advisory on the morning of an announcement but had "nothing further to share before then."

UNC spokeswoman Joanne Peters Denny declined to comment in an email, referring questions to the NCAA.

The focus is on independent-study-style courses in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies Department on the Chapel Hill campus. The courses were misidentified as lecture classes but didn't meet and required a research paper or two for typically high grades.
