Butch Davis: Anyone think the UNC coach will be fired or resign prior to the season opener? According to the Raleigh News & Observer, “A clause in Davis’ contract says that if an NCAA violation occurs in the program that he reasonably should have known about, the university can fire him without owing him payment for the remaining years on the contract.” And don’t think Davis is going to act like he didn’t know what was going on: “One NCAA investigation includes Davis’ associate head coach and close friend John Blake. The other includes his son’s former academic coach.” And if his nanny is involved, like Joe Schad claims, say goodnight, Butch. [N&O]
