North Carolina has hired an attorney who was a former NCAA staffer as a consultant as it deals with an investigation into the football program.

Spokesman Kevin Best says the school has hired Rick Evrard from
the Bond, Schoeneck & King law firm. Evrard is based in Overland
Park, Kan.

Evrard has worked with several institutions on NCAA issues
regarding infractions and compliance. He also spent seven years
with the NCAA, working in enforcement and later as director of
legislative services.

Best says the school first contacted Evrard in late June around
the time the NCAA notified North Carolina of the inquiry. The NCAA
is looking into whether defensive tackle Marvin Austin and receiver
Greg Little received improper benefits from agents.
