UNC gets 1-week extension to respond to 5 NCAA charges

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina will wait another week before responding to five NCAA charges.

The school issued a statement Friday saying UNC and others involved in the case had requested an extension to Monday's response deadline. The school says it will respond to the NCAA's Notice of Allegations (NOA) on Aug. 1, then publicly release a copy a day later after a review and possible redactions to comply with privacy laws.

The school says there is no new information in the case nor has there been a change to the NOA sent in April.

That document charged UNC with lack of institutional control and four other potentially top-level violations tied to the school's long-running academic fraud scandal. The school and individuals charged had 90 days to respond.
