Mack Brown reportedly agrees to return as UNC football coach

Mack Brown reportedly agrees to return as UNC football coach

The job search for a new head coach at North Carolina may have already wrapped up, and a reunion with Mack Brown is reportedly all but official at this point.

Brown would replace Larry Fedora, who was sacked following this season after going 45-43 in seven seasons at UNC.

With Larry Fedora out as head coach of the University of North Carolina football team, a familiar face is coming back, sources confirmed to Inside Carolina.

He will be announced as the new coach on Tuesday at a school press conference.

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

Brown was the head coach at UNC from 1987-1997 compiling a record of 69-46-1.

Brown will be 68-years-old by the time the next season starts, and has been out of coaching for five years. In both of those seasons, North Carolina finished inside the top 10 of the final AP Poll. There he led the Longhorns to 158 wins and a national championship during a 16-year run that included nine straight 10-win seasons.

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

Jones added that Brown's time as a head coach has "passed" and that Les Miles would've been a better choice. Brown not only will draw the attention for his return to college football but the Tar Heels have their opener scheduled against SC in the Belk Kickoff Classic in Charlotte.

The 67-year-old, who won the national championship in 2005 with Vince Young as his quarterback, is now working as an analyst at ESPN.
