UNC football investigation: E-mail to Thorp

UNC Football Investigation Logo
In hundreds of emails, letters and phone calls, fans and foes of the University of North Carolina let Chancellor Holden Thorp know what they thought of how he and Athletic Director Dick Baddour handled the violations, both proven and alleged, of NCAA and UNC rules by football players. Nearly a hundred more filled Thorp's email inbox following his decision to fire head football coach Butch Davis – many in support, many in disapproval.

Fourteen players missed at least one game during the 2010 season as a result of allegations of academic improprieties, improper benefits and agent relationships.

Archive: UNC football investigations

The university has released Thorp's correspondence as part of a wide-ranging request for public documents related to the scandal. WRAL has made those emails available for the public without revealing personal information or names of individuals who are not public figures or affiliated with the university.

The emails, letters and phone calls are searchable below. Scroll down for the complete list, in reverse chronological order, or enter a key word or phrase, such as ‘Butch Davis,' ‘fired' or ‘support.' 

The search results will show the subject of the document and the date it was sent to Thorp.

Right call!
