"For a good academic institution, UNC sure seems to have some dumb administrators. In announcing Davis' firing, chancellor Holden Tharp said an overriding concern was that the university's reputation was being tarnished. Uhh, I think it was tarnished when the news first broke last year. Then, it was further tarnished earlier this year when the official NCAA findings were announced. The timing is awful; if you're going to fire Davis for these transgressions - Davis sure tried to shift all the blame to former defensive line coach John Blake, throwing Blake, a longtime friend, under a fleet of buses - fire him when they first came to light. The timing basically means another lost season for UNC."
