The NCAA Committee on Infractions standard time line for delivering its final report after a school’s COI hearing is 8-to-12 weeks. The COI hearing for The University of North Carolina occurred in Indianapolis on Oct. 28.
The NCAA and the administration at UNC have been in close contact the last few weeks. While the public response has been "it could be any day now", the results of this report [albeit not the actual paper] are now know by those in the South Building in Chapel Hill.
The penalties self imposed by UNC included probation, loss of victories from 2 seasons, scholarship reductions, and a monetary fine.
The final report will be delivered either Friday or early next week, but UNC has been informed that the self-imposed penalties have been accepted. Reasons for this acceptance were also given:
* Not a repeat offender
* Complete openness to the investigators during the process
* Rapid response to allegations by suspending players immediately
* Separating from John Blake when questionable activities were discovered
* Active and apparent improvement of compliance procedures
