North Carolina coach Roy Williams is denying allegations of academic wrongdoing by former player Rashad McCants connected to the school's long-running academic scandal.
In an interview with ESPN's ''Outside the Lines,'' McCants - the second-leading scorer on Williams' first NCAA championship team in 2005 - says tutors wrote papers for him and that Williams knew about no-show classes popular with athletes. McCants also says Williams told him he could swap a failing grade from one class with a passing one from another to stay eligible that season, according to the report.
In a statement Friday, Williams says he did not ''know about or do anything close to what'' McCants alleges, and that former players would agree with him.
McCants entered the NBA draft as a junior after the title run.
