North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham says NCAA investigators will take another look into academic misconduct at the school.

In a statement Monday, Cunningham said the NCAA has notified UNC it will reopen its investigation in a case that began as an offshoot of a 2010 probe into the football program. He says the NCAA has determined additional people with information are available to talk with investigators for the first time.

Investigations have uncovered fraud in a department with classes featuring significant athlete enrollments, including lecture classes that did not meet and were treated as independent studies requiring only a research paper at semester's end.

The ex-department chairman and a retired administrator have met with former U.S. Justice Department official Kenneth Wainstein in his independent probe into the fraud.
