North Carolina Hires Mack Brown as Head Coach for Second Stint

The University of North Carolina and Mack Brown have reached a deal for Brown to become their head football coach for a second time according to multiple reports.

Brown formerly served as head coach at the university from 1988 to 1997. He posted a 69-46-1 record in a tremendous rebuilding job that saw his first team go 1-10 and his last team at UNC go 10-1.

He is more famously known for being the head coach at the University of Texas, where he was in charge from 1998 to 2013. He posted a 158-48 record and helped lead the Longhorns to a win in the 2006 Rose Bowl, giving them a National Championship.

For his career, Brown has a 244-122-1 record at four different universities, although he hasn’t coached since 2013. Since that time he has worked at ESPN as a college football analyst.

The news of the Brown hiring comes a day after North Carolina fired head coach Larry Fedora. Fedora was 43-42 in his time at the school, but went 2-9 this season.
