Mack Brown Hired As UNC's Next Football Coach

UNC reportedly hiring back Mack Brown

Mack Brown is returning to North Carolina as its head football coach, 247Sports' Inside Carolina reported Monday, citing unidentified sources. Brown's hiring is pending approval by the university's board, per the report.

His last five years were spent as an ESPN college football analyst. Brown, who won a national championship with the Longhorns during the 2005 season, has not coached since his final season in Austin in 2013.

"Sally and I love North Carolina, we love this University and we are thrilled to be back, " Brown said in a press release. Fedora's fate may have been determined prior to Saturday's regular season finale against NC State, thanks in part to Cunningham and North Carolina having the next move already lined up. Brown coached at North Carolina for 10 years before being hired by Texas in 1997.

Following Brown's departure from UNC in 1997, the Tar Heels did not have another ranked finish until 2015, when Fedora led the team to an 11-3 record in his fourth season.

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

The agreement says that Madrid will be given a say on matters concerning Gibraltar when it comes to future trade deals. They also backed a 26-page document laying out their aims for future relations after Britain leaves in March.

Brown replaces Larry Fedora, who was sacked Sunday after going 45-43 in seven seasons at UNC. In total, Brown has a career head coaching record of 244-122 in 30 seasons and is 13-8 in bowl games. Brown also directed Texas to two Big 12 titles and he led the Longhorns to six Big South divisional titles as well as nine straight 10-win seasons.

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, who is now an analyst for ESPN, is tied with Coach Bill Dooley for second place in all-time wins at North Carolina. Brown was most recently a college football commentator for ESPN.
