NCAA levies more charges against North Carolina

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — The NCAA has charged North Carolina with five violations, including failing to sufficiently monitor its academic support program for athletes, in its long-running fraud scandal.

The governing body added the failure-to-monitor charge in its latest Notice of Allegations that UNC released Monday. The NOA also included a women's basketball adviser tied to improper assistance on research papers.

The document used to specify violations is similar to a version sent last May in the multi-year case, containing lack of institutional control among five potentially top-level charges.

But the NCAA removed a charge of school athletes receiving improper benefits through access to problem courses in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies (AFAM) department between 2002 and 2011.

UNC has 90 days to respond, jumpstarting a case stalled since August.
