North Carolina Director of Athletics Bubba Cunningham issued a statement Friday about the release of public records related to the joint NCAA investigation.
Bubba Cunningham, North Carolina Director of Athletics:
"The University of North Carolina released a number of documents today pursuant to an order from Superior Court Judge Howard Manning. In 2010, Carolina worked with the NCAA enforcement staff to submit statements of facts and subsequent reinstatement requests on behalf of a number of football student-athletes. The records released today (and those that will be released on Nov. 5th) were provided to the NCAA staff prior to UNC's appearance at the Committee on Infractions hearing on Oct. 28, 2011. The NCAA issued its ruling in March 2012 with full knowledge of these issues and facts.
The University has strictly adhered to the terms of the sanctions. The University of North Carolina and the Department of Athletics are deeply committed to maintaining the long-standing traditions of academic achievement and athletic success with integrity that have been the hallmark of our program for many decades. We are completely committed to these principles as we move forward."
