CHAPEL HILL, N. Brendan Gallagher Canadiens Jersey .C. -- Former Illinois coach Tim Beckman, fired last year amid allegations of player mistreatment, is working as a volunteer assistant with No. 22 North Carolinas defense.Speaking after Wednesday evenings practice, Tar Heels coach Larry Fedora described the decision as helping a friend while also gaining Beckmans expertise as a former head coach and defensive coordinator. Fedora and Beckman were assistants together at Oklahoma State in 2007.Let me make something clear so everybody understands: Im the one that sets the expectations on our culture and how our student-athletes are treated, Fedora said. Im at the top, I set it for everybody.So Tims here doing what the NCAA allows him to do as a volunteer assistant: studying film, scouting, all those kind of things. And so Im glad were able to give him this opportunity until hes able to find employment.In an email to The Associated Press on Wednesday, team spokesman Kevin Best said Beckman can interact with players but cannot instruct them as a coach.The News-Gazette of Champaign, Illinois, first reported Beckmans role.Illinois fired Beckman shortly before the 2015 opener after a law firm hired by the university concluded he interfered in player medical decisions and pressured players to play through injuries. Beckman denied the accusations and said he was considering legal steps to defend himself before receiving a $250,000 settlement from the school.Fedora said Wednesday he conferred with athletic director Bubba Cunningham before bringing Beckman on as a volunteer assistant at the start of training camp.If I wouldnt have known Tim, it may not have happened, he said.Asked about the perception of bringing Beckman into the program, Fedora responded: I dont believe everything I read, all right? I know Tim. I know his side of the story also. So I was comfortable with it.If I wouldnt have been, obviously I wouldnt have brought him. I wouldnt allow him to be in our program, but I was very comfortable with it. I dont have any issues with it at all.Fedora said rules allow Beckman to be on the sideline for games or travel this season, but said no decisions have been made on whether that will happen.The Tar Heels beat the Illini 48-14 at home last season with Bill Cubit serving as Illinois interim coach.
