A former federal prosecutor hired by North Carolina to investigate academic irregularities involving athletes is expected to brief university officials on the progress of his review.

Ken Wainstein is scheduled to meet Friday with the UNC Board of Governors to provide what officials describe as a "high-level update" on the probe. According to the university, Wainstein will address the scope of his work, but won't share any factual findings or conclusions from his still-ongoing investigation.

Wainstein's appearance comes two weeks after former Tar Heel basketball star Rashad McCants claimed he played on the school's 2005 national championship team despite not attending any classes. McCants' allegations are the latest levied against UNC in a scandal that began as an offshoot of a 2010 NCAA investigation into the football program.
