Mack Brown Hired As UNC's Next Football Coach

Brown, who will be 68 by the time next season kicks off, last coached at Texas in 2013, when he was unceremoniously pushed out the door to make room for Nick Saban only for the Longhorns to hire Charlie Strong instead.

For the past few seasons, since he left his post as head coach of Texas, Brown has worked as college football analyst for ESPN.

The Austin American-Statesman reported that he would be interested in assembling a staff that would include former Auburn head coach Gene Chizik as his defensive coordinator and recently fired Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury as his offensive coordinator.

Brown's 244 career victories rank 10th among FBS coaches.

Brown's two most successful seasons came in his last two years at the helm, when UNC combined for a 20-3 record. Brown was the 1996 ACC Coach of the Year. "I won't go back unless it's somewhere that they really need us, it's somewhere we want to live". Brown coached UNC to four top 25 finishes in the AP Top 25, and four of the five top 25 seasons on Chapel Hill since 1983. In the recruiting hotbed of the Longhorn state, Brown always had top-level talent, and even that couldn't save him at the end.

ESPN personality Bomani Jones took to Twitter to crush North Carolina's decision. 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. "I've interviewed a couple of places". Lou Holtz is probably on the phone with his agent testing the waters as I type this.

Mack Brown is coming home.

It looks like Mack Brown is headed back to North Carolina.
