Mack Brown reportedly returning as North Carolina coach

Mack Brown reportedly returning as North Carolina coach

Brown agreed to terms to become the next head coach at North Carolina, a source told ESPN on Monday night, but his return was pending approval by the university's board. Officials announced Tuesday that Mack Brown is coming back to coach football at UNC.

Brown's two most successful seasons came in his last two years at the helm, when UNC combined for a 20-3 record.

Texas football could be impacted any number of ways by some of the recent coaching news happening around the Power Five conferences.

If he's able to assemble that kind of staff, it not only could awaken the Tar Heels and their fan base, but also serve as a warning that Brown is serious about trying to threaten the ACC's current dominant power, Clemson, among others.

Brown, of course, coached North Carolina for 10 seasons in the 1980s and 1990s.

Watford were furious they were denied a penalty at 0-0 when Will Hughes appeared to be fouled by Andy Robertson. The Liverpool manager was impressed with the manner in which his side controlled the game.


Brown's wife, though, was only going to let him coach in three places, he joked.

The 67-year-old College Football Hall of Famer led the Tar Heels from 1988 up until 1997.

He had his biggest success with the Longhorns, winning the national championship in 2005 with Vince Young as his quarterback. Brown, who signed a five-year deal that will pay him $3.5 million annually, replaces Larry Fedora, who was sacked Sunday after seven seasons. Fedora did wear out his welcome in Chapel Hill, NC, hence the move to bring someone aboard like Brown. Led UNC to two top-10 final rankings and Texas to seven top-10 final rankings.

He started 1-10 in each of his first two seasons, but steadily built up the program through strong recruiting, particularly with instate prospects.
