UNC receives notice of allegations

The university announced today that it received a notice of allegations from the NCAA as the next phase in its investigation of academic irregularities and possible bylaw infractions. "We will carefully evaluate them to respond within the NCAA's 90-day deadline," said chancellor Carol L. Folt and athletic director Bubba Cunningham.

Dana O'Neil @ESPNDanaOneil

Carolina confirms via statement it has received notice of allegations. Will share w public once readied -that is likely names redacted etc
