UNC Sends Formal Letter Breaking Ties With Tutor

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina has formally broken ties from the tutor linked to the ongoing NCAA investigation of its athletic program.

In a letter dated Nov. 5, athletic director Dick Baddour informed Jennifer Wiley of Chapel Hill that the university had learned she provided "impermissible extra benefits" to players, including about $2,000 connected with travel expenses. It also states she "provided impermissible academic assistance to some of our student-athletes."

The letter states the university won't accept financial contributions for the athletic department from her and insisted she have no contact with any student-athlete for five years.

The NCAA has looked into possible academic violations involving Wiley, who didn't respond to an e-mail for comment Thursday.

    Oh and now they are just going to throw her under the bus and not Butch. This is the same freakin Butch that hired the girl. He should have known that, and it bugs me that this creep of a coach is still there. Butch has got to go as well. You have a mix of dealings with this girl and the John Blake issue. It's obvious Butch is up to corruption, just like the politicians that come from that joke of a law school.

    UNC-CHeat= corruption. Spin, deny, cover (up), lie, etc. It keeps getting deeper and deeper in Cheater Hill. The team that sold their souls for a few Tire Bowls. NCAA sanctions are looming, tick tock... No amount of arrogance and w(h)ine and cheese will save UNC-CHeat. "The Carolina Way" is exposed and does it ever STINK!

    Follow the money!!! There is no way a tutor had that kind of money to give away. She was just a funnel to get money to the players from the coaching staff. It ain't hard to figure. UNC has alway's paid players and their families.
