Defensive end Micheal McAdoo has filed a lawsuit against the University of North Carolina seeking reinstatement.

McAdoo has been declared premanently ineligible for acadmic misconduct by the NCAA. His lawsuit is also seeking unspecified damages from the school and the NCAA.
According to the complaint, the NCAA ruled McAdoo ineligible for receiving improper assistance from tutor Jennifer Wiley “on multiple assignments across several academic terms.” The school’s Honor Court decided to suspend him from school for the spring semester, but it did allow him the opportunity to re-enroll in the summer and then return to the football team this fall. He also received $110 in improper benefits concerning a trip to Washington, DC last season.
McAdoo was one of seven players  forced to sit out all of last season amid the NCAA’s investigation into improper benefits and academic misconduct. The lawsuit seeks to compel chancellor Holden Thorp to reinstate McAdoo while also preventing the NCAA from interfering in the process or punishing the school if he does return. A hearing on that request is scheduled for July 15. The school is reviewing the lawsuit.
