CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina coach Larry Fedora says he never saw signs of alleged rules violations reported by Sports Illustrated while an assistant at Oklahoma State.

SI reported improper payments to players from boosters and academic fraud within the program from 2000-11. Fedora was the Cowboys’ offensive coordinator under Mike Gundy from 2005-07 before becoming head coach at Southern Mississippi.

Fedora, now in his second year at UNC, called the allegations “shocking” Wednesday evening but says he doesn’t know if they’re true. He says Gundy and administrators made it clear “that you were going to do things right there, no doubt.”

Fedora said he has talked with UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham about the allegations. He also said he expected Oklahoma State officials would be “aggressive” and “transparent” with any investigation.
