Thorp to address BOG committee

University of North Carolina chancellor Holden Thorp is scheduled this afternoon to give an update on the school's athletics program to a UNC system Board of Governors committee in Chapel Hill.

Thorp will address the Board of Governors Committee on University Governance. Fifteen days ago, with UNC preparing a response to allegations of nine major violations from the NCAA, Thorp fired football coach Butch Davis.

Some fans have reacted angrily to the firing, but the faculty and UNC Board of Trustees have backed Thorp.
