Football Update

March 13, 2012

Dear Carolina community,

Today we received the NCAA’s ruling on the investigation of our football program. It has been almost two years since the investigation began, so this is a big step in moving forward.

From the beginning, we approached this investigation the way you would expect of this University – thoughtfully, thoroughly and with full cooperation – and that was the right thing to do. The NCAA acknowledged the quality of our investigation and praised our cooperation.

Last fall, we self-imposed a number of penalties that we thought were appropriate based on the facts in our case. With additional penalties imposed by the NCAA, we have a one-year postseason ban, a reduction of 15 football scholarships, vacation of some records and three years of probation.

The ruling is disappointing for our new coaching staff and for our student-athletes. We considered an appeal, but appeals rarely succeed, and penalties are suspended during an appeal. We made mistakes, and we take responsibility for that, so we will accept our sanctions and move forward.

This has been a difficult time for Carolina athletics and for the University, but we have learned from it. Thank you for your patience during this long process and for your support of Carolina.

Sincerely,

Holden Thorp
