NCAA investigates another UNC football player

Posted:
By Nbc17 Staff

NCAA officials returned to the UNC-Chapel Hill campus again earlier this week.

ESPN is reporting that investigators interviewed defensive end Quinton Coples about attending a post-draft party earlier this month in Washington, DC and the NCAA wants to know how Coples paid for his travel, admission and hotel.

UNC would not specifically comment only saying that NCAA investigators were on campus.

It comes on the heels of last fall's scandal when thirteen players missed at least one game as the agency investigated illegal benefits from agents and possible academic misconduct.

The UNC system's special task force on athletics and academics is expected to release its recommendations this summer.

The group was created in the wake of the UNC scandal.

The goal is to find ways to better educate student athletes about academic misconduct and NCAA compliance.
