UNC Receives Letter of Inquiry

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – North Carolina announced on Tuesday that it had received a notice of inquiry from the NCAA, representing the official beginning to its investigation into UNC's football program that actually began on June 21, 2010.

"The notice of inquiry is a formal notification from the NCAA that they have been reviewing our football program," said UNC Director of Athletics Dick Baddour. "We have been working with the NCAA and cooperating with them on this investigation. We are committed to the process and will continue to cooperate."

Since the investigation into the football program is now reaching its anniversary date, the notice of inquiry is a mere formality at this point of the process. The next step is for North Carolina to receive a notice of allegations that contains specific alleged rules infractions against the school.
