It would just figure that UNC would somehow figure out a way to commit an NCAA violation while discussing why Butch Davis was fired. That's exactly what North Carolina chancellor Holden Thorp did on Thursday when telling the media about Davis' final parting gift: Offering a scholarship to his son, Drew Davis. Mentioning an unsigned recruit by name, which Thorp did, is an NCAA no-no, and has to be reported as a violation.
Holden Thorp committed secondary NCAA violation discussing Drew Davis scholly offer. School has self-reported.
At this point, the whole situation is a bungled mess. While Thorp's secondary violation shouldn't net UNC anything more than a slap on the wrist and "don't do it again" from the NCAA, it just looks bad amidst the rest of the storm in Chapel Hill.
