CHAPEL HILL, NC - The NCAA tells North Carolina athletic officials that it isn't considering additional charges connected to academic fraud in the university's African studies department.
The school on Saturday released two emails from Sept. 26 after a records request. The first is from UNC senior associate athletic director Vince Ille to NCAA associate director of enforcement Mike Zonder.
Ille asked whether he correctly assumed the NCAA wasn't planning additional investigation or charges of irregularities in the school's African studies department.
Zonder replied that "you are correct in your assessment." The NCAA sanctioned UNC for academic misconduct within its football program in March 2012.
The school said in August that the NCAA had reviewed irregularities including no-show classes and unauthorized grade changes in classes with significant athlete enrollments and found no rule violations.
