CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - The investigation of North Carolina’s football program has expanded into possible academic misconduct involving players and a woman who has also worked as a tutor for coach Butch Davis’ son.

Athletic director Dick Baddour, speaking at a news conference Thursday night, declined to identify the players or say how many may be involved. He said there is no timetable for resolution, but “it is likely that the review would extend beyond the start of the season.”

If that happens, he said the school will decide if those players will play. No. 18 North Carolina opens Sept. 4 against No. 21 LSU in Atlanta. Baddour declined to specify what the possible violations were, only that they involved “a student tutor and student-athletes on the football team.”
