North Carolina women’s basketball coaches under internal investigation (USA)
The North Carolina women’s basketball coaching staff has been placed on paid administrative leave pending an internal investigation into “issues raised by student-athletes and others,” the school said in a press release.
That includes head coach Sylvia Hatchell and her three assistants, a spokesperson confirmed.
Hatchell has coached at North Carolina since 1986 and is in the national Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame. She is the only women’s basketball coach to win national championships at three different levels — AIAW, NAIA, and NCAA.
“The Charlotte-based firm Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein will conduct the review and assess the culture of the women’s basketball program and the experience of our student-athletes,” the school’s statement said.
