UNC’s Coach ‘Worried Sick’ About NCAA Probe

Updated

on

North Carolina coach Roy Williams said Wednesday that he is “worried sick” about the pending NCAA investigation into the school’s academic scandal, and included in his worries are concerns about his own reputation.

An investigation led by former U.S. Department of Justice official Kenneth Wainstein found that more than 3,100 students — 48 percent of them athletes — took “paper classes” in the Afro-American studies department.

Now in his 12th year at North Carolina, the Hall of Fame coach said this is far more personal because he is a graduate of the university as well as its men’s basketball coach.

“It hurts,” he said.
