  • UNC reportedly hiring back Mack Brown

The 67-year-old won 69 games during his nine-year stint as Tar Heels head coach between 1988 and 1997, recording three bowl victories, as well as three 10-win seasons and consecutive top-10 finishes in his final two seasons before becoming head coach at the University of Texas. In his final season, his team finished 10-1.

For the past few seasons, since he left his post as head coach of Texas, Brown has worked as college football analyst for ESPN.

A day after firing Larry Fedora, North Carolina reportedly already has its new head coach.

His 16-season stay at Texas was highlighted by national championships in the 2005 and '09 seasons. He's won two national Coach of the Year awards, was ACC Coach of the Year at UNC in 1996 and was twice named Big 12 Coach of the Year.

The boat's passengers, in a party mood halfway through their journey, likely panicked when the vessel started to sink, he said. Local government official Richard Kikongo said: "A big storm hit". "It can be fine on land but bad weather on the lake".

Since he left Texas, Brown has entered into broadcasting and is now a college football analyst for ESPN.

The Austin American-Statesman reported that he would be interested in assembling a staff that would include former Auburn head coach Gene Chizik as his defensive coordinator and recently fired Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury as his offensive coordinator.

Brown's overall career record is 244-122. "We can't to wait to meet our current student-athletes and reconnect with friends, alumni and fellow Tar Heel coaches". "We thank UNC's Board of Trustees, Chancellor Folt and Bubba Cunningham for supporting our return to the Carolina family". Fedora did wear out his welcome in Chapel Hill, NC, hence the move to bring someone aboard like Brown. "We are welcoming back a coach who built a winning football program during his first tenure in Chapel Hill - one that reflected the values, culture, and commitment to the excellence we aspire to in everything we do at this university". "I'm looking forward to welcoming Mack and Sally back home to Carolina".
