North Carolina hiring Mack Brown as head coach

UNC reportedly hiring back Mack Brown

Mack Brown will be the new head coach at North Carolina according to multiple reports after Larry Fedora's firing on Sunday.

And as with his first stint in Chapel Hill, Brown faces significant hurdles as he takes the job. Fedora compiled a 45-43 record in seven seasons at UNC. 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. Brown was originally hired at UNC in 1988 and led the Tar Heels to three 10-win seasons and three bowl victories before being hired away by Texas in 1998.

Ticket prices for next season's opener were recently announced with prices for Gamecock Club members starting from $59. Texas went 8-4 this year and Brown's final game will be the December 30 Alamo Bowl against Oregon.

South Carolina's 2019 season-opening opponent didn't wait long to replace its fired head coach.

"We are excited about his plans for our football program, and I am thrilled to welcome Coach Brown and wife Sally back to Chapel Hill". 247Sports affiliate Inside Carolina is reporting that an announcement is expected Tuesday with Brown already beginning to assemble his coaching staff. The News & Observer has confirmed this report.

He left for Texas after leading UNC to back-to-back top 10 finishes in the final AP polls in 1996 and '97, capping a two-year run in which the Tar Heels were 20-3.

His 16-season stay at Texas was highlighted by national championships in the 2005 and '09 seasons. Brown's final four teams went a combined 30-21 before his exit in 2013.

Brown also has been a head coach at Tulane, as well as an assistant at Florida State, Southern Mississippi, Memphis State, Iowa State, Louisiana State (LSU) and Oklahoma. His 69 wins at North Carolina are second only to Dick Crum (72).

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