"[Basketball Coach Roy] Williams and [AD] Baddour told investigators they knew that basketball player Rashad McCants had been in four AFAM independent studies in the spring 2005 semester, while the team was making a run to the national championship."
"The report, the third and most comprehensive produced in the matter, said that some academic advisers in the school's Academic Support Program for Student Athletes (APSPA) had ties to Crowder and let her know how high a student's grade needed to be to maintain a 2.0 GPA to be eligible to play."
“Between 1993 and 2011, Crowder and Nyang’oro developed and ran a ‘shadow curriculum’ within the AFAM Department that provided students with academically flawed instruction through the offering of ‘paper classes,’” the report said. “These were classes that involved no interaction with a faculty member, required no class attendance or course work other than single paper, and resulted in consistently high grades that Crowder awarded without reading the papers or otherwise evaluating their true quality.”
"Two counselors even suggested to Crowder what grades to give to the athletes. One of them, Jan Boxill, later became the faculty leader for UNC in 2011, just as the academic fraud became public."
