ESPN Analyst Crushes North Carolina’s New Coaching Hire

Fedora, who amassed a 45-43 record at UNC, stands to make as much as $12 million in order to satisfy the terms of his contract, a pact that had been set to run until January 2024.

North Carolina and Mack Brown have reportedly agreed to terms on a deal that would bring the hall of fame coach back to for a second stint with the Tar Heels. According to the report, the decision to hire Brown will be announced on Tuesday as the 67-year-old starts putting together a coaching staff. Brown was the 1996 ACC Coach of the Year. The Tar Heels were ranked in the top 10 in Brown's final two seasons in Chapel Hill.

Brown is a big name, obviously, and he's won a national championship, but not everyone is thrilled with North Carolina's decision.

Brown led a lengthy period of success with the Longhorns, including winning the 2005 BCS national title in the infamous Rose Bowl game against USC.

Brown has spent the past five years as a college football analyst for ESPN but in recent years had expressed an interest in returning to the sideline.

News of the Brown hiring was reported Monday morning by Inside Carolina, which followed up a previous report from Football Scoop from Sunday noting there were some hot murmurs about the hiring process at UNC being connected to Brown.

Heralded as a sleeping giant in college football for many years, the Tar Heels have long held delusions of grandeur in thinking their program is more than what it is.

Over 29 seasons as a head coach at Tulane, UNC and Texas, Brown has a career-record of 238-117-1.
