NCAA to re-open academic misconduct investigation at UNC

By The Associated Press
North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham says NCAA investigators will take another look into academic misconduct at the school.<br /> <br /> In a statement Monday, Cunningham said the NCAA has notified UNC it will reopen its investigation in a case that began as an offshoot of a 2010 probe into the football program. He says the NCAA has determined additional people with information are available to talk with investigators for the first time.<br /> <br /> Investigations have uncovered fraud in a department with classes featuring significant athlete enrollments, including lecture classes that did not meet and were treated as independent studies requiring only a research paper at semester's end.<br /> <br /> The ex-department chairman and a retired administrator have met with former U.S. Justice Department official Kenneth Wainstein in his independent probe into the fraud.
