University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Chancellor Carol L. Folt and Director of Athletics Bubba Cunningham today issued the following statement about receiving the NCAA’s notice of allegations as the next phase in its investigation of academic irregularities and possible bylaw infractions:

“We take these allegations very seriously, and we will carefully evaluate them to respond within the NCAA’s 90-day deadline. The University will publicly release the NCAA’s notice as soon as possible. The notice is lengthy and must be prepared for public dissemination to ensure we protect privacy rights as required by federal and state law. When that review for redactions is complete, the University will post the notice on the Carolina Commitment website and notify the news media. When we respond to the NCAA’s allegations, we will follow this same release process. Consistent with NCAA protocols, the University cannot comment on details of the investigation until it is completed.”
