FILE - In this Feb. 1, 2018, file photo, North Carolina coach Sylvia Hatchell questions a call during the second half of the team's NCAA college basketball game against Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind. Hatchell has resigned after an external review found she had made "racially insensitive" comments and applied "undue influence" regarding players' ability to compete through medical issues.

The review also reported "a breakdown of connectivity between the players and Hatchell" after 28 interviews of current players and program personnel. (AP Photo/Robert Franklin, File)
