I guess this latest display of a lack of ethics coming from Butch Davis and his coaches shouldn’t be much of a surprise. Despite UNC not cooperating with the media in releasing information the public is entitled to and avoiding detailed answers in regards to the investigation, Butch and his staff are freely giving their version of the outcome of the scandal in Chapel Hill to recruits according to a local high school coach:
“Devonte has always liked Carolina,” Bailey said. “He actually committed, then decommitted to them this summer when he went up there for camp. But he’s always liked them. Then the stuff with (John) Blake threw him for a loop for a while. But I think Coach Davis and the staff convinced him that all the (NCAA) sanctions involve players and not the actual program. I don’t know what happens if that changes between now and signing day. But for now he’s committed to North Carolina.”‘
Former UNC associate head coach John Blake was in charge of the recruiting efforts for Brown until he resigned in September over a relationship with sports agent Gary Wichard.
So Butch and UNC’s staff can give their opinion of the outcome of the current scandal in Chapel Hill to high school recruits, but they refuse to openly discuss this matter with the public?
UNC continues to selectively comply with requests by the media to share information about the NCAA investigation, however UNC willfully provides their version of events to high school football players, families and coaches to advance the football program?
If this only involves rogue players and a rogue coach, then why won’t UNC officials release more information?
What are they afraid of?
If the policy is not to discuss the scandal, then shouldn’t that policy be followed strictly and not selectively only when it helps your football program?
