13 UNC players suspended for up to 4 games after selling Jordans given to them by football program. QB Chazz Surratt suspended for 4 games.  

From the school’s statement:

UNC’s recent switch to Nike’s Jordan Brand likely made Heels team gear that much more enticing:

UNC announced the arrival of exclusive Air Jordan 3s in a Jan. 11 Instagram post. When asked in the comments section when the shoes would go on sale to the general public, a reply by the program’s equipment staff indicated the shoes were a team-issued item only and would not be available at retail.

Per NCAA rules, players aren’t allowed to sell gear, and most other regular-person methods of making money are also forbidden.

This comes shortly after head coach Larry Fedora went a little overboard in his defense of football’s rules, becoming something of a national laughingstock for a day or two.

Looks like this won’t be the Tarheels year.
