Marvin Austin dismissed from North Carolina football team
Marvin Austin has been dismissed from the North Carolina football program because he received NCAA agent benefits and preferential treatment and violated ethical conduct rules, the school has announced.
Austin, who's from Washington, D.C., was suspended indefinitely
on Sept. 1 for violating team rules. UNC based its decision on information it obtained in an investigation it conducted with the NCAA.
In addition, the school announced that Greg Little and Robert Quinn are out for the season because of untruthfulness, Chancellor Holden Thorp said, in connection with the investigation.
They are among more than a dozen Tar Heel players who have missed games as a result of the NCAA's probe.
