Hairston's Career Over At UNC PDF Print
Written by Staff Reports

P.J. Hairston's career is over at North Carolina. School officials said Friday that they won't seek Hairston's reinstatement from the NCAA after he committed several rules violations.




Hairston hasn't played all season while the school and NCAA worked to resolve eligibility questions, many stemming from Hairston’s use of cars linked to a felon and party promoter in Durham earlier this year.


Coach Roy Williams said Friday it was "probably the most difficult and saddest thing I've ever gone through as a head coach."


Hairston has practiced with the team and has been on the bench for home games. Hairston, a 6-5 swingman, led the team in scoring last year with about 15 points a game and shot 40 percent from 3-point range.


He decided to return for his junior season instead of entering the NBA Draft in June but never made it back on the court for the Tar Heels.
