The University of North Carolina is taking steps in conducting one more investigation related to the academic issues that have haunted the school for some time now. According to a report by WRAL, the university has hired Kenneth Wainstein, a former U.S. Justice Department attorney, to lead the outside investigation.

Wainstein will be asked to review findings from a 2012 investigation that uncovered a number of academic problems in the university. Among the problems discovered included no-show classes and grade changing over years.

“We – the UNC Board of Governors, UNC-Chapel Hill Board of Trustees, Chancellor Folt and [UNC President Tom Ross] – have said all along that we would re-evaluate next steps once the SBI had completed its investigation,” Ross said in a statement. “We have directed Mr. Wainstein to ask the tough questions, follow the facts wherever they lead and get the job done. I believe these efforts will accelerate the university’s capacity to achieve the meaningful academic and athletic reform that our entire community expects.”

UNC previously disputed a report by CNN suggesting a number of student-athletes at the university were unable to complete college level work and faced problems of illiteracy. Former defensive end Michael McAdoo later claimed he was guided to no-show classes by a counselor hired by the university.

    If you listen to player interviews– from just about all schools (Ivy League excluded) they can’t put together a coherent sentence. If the school(s) and player(s) don’t care about education; how can they expect fans to care?
