North Carolina fired its football coach, Larry Fedora on Sunday morning after a 2-9 record this season. Now, the North Carolina Tar Heels have elected to bring back former head coach and Hall of Famer, Mack Brown for a second stint with the Tar Heels, per reports.
In the seven seasons under Fedora, North Carolina had a 45-43 mark across seven seasons. One of those seasons he won 11 games and capped off the season with an ACC Coastal championship in 2015.
Brown coached North Carolina for nine seasons, winning 69 games (69-46-1 overall record) which were good for second best in program history. In addition, he had three 10-win winning seasons, two of which being a back-to-back top-10 finish in 1996-97, before leaving to become the head coach of Texas.
At Texas, he led the Longhorns to 158 wins and a national championship during a 16-year run that included nine consecutive 10-win seasons.
Brown was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame earlier this year and is tied with Frank Beamer as the ninth-winningest coach in Division I history. He is 20 wins shy over moving to sixth all-time.
Ladies and gentlemen… It’s the return of the Mack.
