North Carolina brings back Mack Brown as football coach

UNC reportedly hiring back Mack Brown

North Carolina has officially announced the hiring of Mack Brown as the next head coach of the Tar Heels. Fedora had a 45-43 mark across seven seasons with the Tar Heels, a tenure that was highlighted by an 11-win season and ACC Coastal championship in 2015 and the rewriting of almost every offensive record in program history.

The Tar Heels fired their head coach, Larry Fedora, on Sunday after going 2-9 this season, his seventh with the program. Unlike Webber's, Brown's story is most positive and exalts him as a hero who can reverse the football fortunes of a school that has been among the nation's top major college powers during different time spans.

Once at Texas, Brown coached a Heisman Trophy victor in Ricky Williams, then another Heisman finalist - Vince Young - led the Longhorns to a 13-0 season in 2005 that ended with a win against USC in a Rose Bowl classic for the national title. Brown coached at North Carolina for 10 years before being hired by Texas in 1997.

Brown has also been a head coach at Tulane (1985-1987) and Appalachian State (1983).

If multiple news reports are accurate, the life of North Carolina High Country resident Mack Brown has come full circle while proving you can, indeed, go home again. Those Longhorns teams went 158-48 in Brown's tenure; on two occasions Texas played in the national title game.

He had his biggest success with the Longhorns, winning the national championship in 2005 with Vince Young as his quarterback.

Brown's overall career record is 244-122.

Brown parted ways with Texas following the 2013 season after the Longhorns failed to reach 10 wins in each of his final four seasons.

Brown won 69 games during his run as North Carolina coach from 1988-97, good for second in program history. He has always been regarded as one of college football's most wide-open and top offensive coaches.
