The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill acknowledged in a report to the National Collegiate Athletic Association on Monday that two former employees had given improper academic help to football players, and said it would impose several penalties on its athletics program as punishment for that and other violations. The university made public a redacted version of its response to a notice in which the NCAA alleged a series of violations by the Tar Heel sports program. It responds point by point to the charges made by the NCAA, which include improper payments to football players and other breaches, and states that North Carolina will cut scholarships and vacate 16 football victories from 2008 and 2009, but stops short of tougher penalties.
