CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina's compliance director reached out to former men's basketball player Rashad McCants last month asking to meet and discuss his allegations of academic misconduct at the school.
Senior associate athletic director Vince Ille sent a letter dated June 6 after McCants told ESPN's "Outside the Lines" that tutors wrote papers for him and he took no-show classes in a department plagued by fraud. Ille provided The Associated Press with a copy of the letter and a tracking slip showing it was delivered June 9.
The school also sent text messages June 8 and June 11 to McCants, a top player on the 2005 NCAA championship team. Ille said Monday the school has not received a response.
