The NCAA infractions report on the University of North Carolina academic scandal was supposed to come out last Friday, but it was delayed. Now, it will be released tomorrow.
According to Scout’s Greg Barnes, the original release was delayed at North Carolina’s request, as it would interfere with the launch of a major university fundraising campaign.
Now, it will be released tomorrow.
The next and potentially final step in the University of North Carolina’s years-long NCAA investigation into academic irregularities in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies department will occur Friday when the NCAA releases its infraction report. Sources confirm the University was given 24 hours notice of the announcement schedule on Thursday morning.
The NCAA had planned to release the report last Friday, but UNC asked for it to be postponed, per sources, because of events surrounding the University’s major fundraising campaign that was launching that day.
News & Observer writer Andrew Carter says that the report will be made public at noon.

The NCAA first reopened the investigation into UNC in 2014, so this has been a very long time coming.
