UNC Football: Additional details on the program’s self-reported secondary violations

According to a report from Inside Carolina, further details have trickled out regarding UNC football and this week’s discovery of a self-reported secondary violation. The players facing a suspension have yet to be named; however, those athletes will be informed of their consequences prior to the team’s season-opener against California (Sept. 1).

The story was first reported by Jeff Gravely of WRAL — back on Wednesday (July 18).

Earlier this week: UNC’s athletic director Bubba Cunningham confirmed that the violations, which involved selling university-issued athletic gear, are limited to just the football program.

The suspensions can differ in length, and will depend on the value of the items that were sold. In his interview with WCHL in Chapel Hill, Cunningham mentioned that the university’s compliance staff learned of the violations through social media, too.

Initially, self-reported back in February, the violations were noted as secondary by the NCAA in March.
