Marvin Austin Dismissed From UNC Tar Heels Football

Nearly three months after the announcement of a wide-ranging NCAA investigation of the UNC football program, senior star Marvin Austin has been dismissed from the team for "violations of NCAA agent benefits, preferential treatment and ethical conduct rules":

North Carolina based its decision on recent information gathered as part of the joint investigation with the NCAA. Austin's case was not submitted to the NCAA for reinstatement. A senior from Washington, D.C., Austin had been suspended indefinitely since September 1 for violating team rules.

Austin is the second player to have his career permanently curtailed thanks to this investigation, following the ousting of Weslye Saunders from South Carolina, and the first of the thirteen implicated Tar Heels to be sent packing.
