Found September 17, 2012 on Fox Sports Carolinas:
For the second time since the NCAA began investigating North Carolinas football program 27 months ago, Holden Thorp did the right thing. The 10th chancellor in UNC history turned in his resignation Sunday, and he will officially leave his post at the conclusion of this academic year in June. This was a wise decision. But based on Thorps words and how hes handled UNCs never-ending multi-faceted crisis, he probably should have made this decision a while ago. In addition, if held to the same standard by the UNC Board of Trustees and UNC system that he held former football coach Butch Davis, Thorp would have been fired already rather than walking away on his own terms.
