Mack Brown is coming back to coach football at UNC

UNC reportedly hiring back Mack Brown

Brown left UNC to become head coach at the University of Texas, where he had a 158-48 record after 16 seasons. Two former head coaches that took a career in commentary and analysis for college football in the past few years included former LSU Tigers head coach Les Miles and former head Texas football coach Mack Brown.

Fedora went 45-43 in his seven years at North Carolina, leading the Heels to four straight bowls at one point, but back-to-back 2-9 campaigns led to his dismissal. 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.

"Sally and I love North Carolina, we love this University and we are thrilled to be back, " Mack Brown said in a school release. Brown will appear on "College Football Countdown" and offer pregame, halftime and postgame commentary for the games on ABC, including "Saturday Night Football". He also made it to the BCS National Championship in 2009 before losing to Alabama.

Brown will have his work cut out for him as North Carolina has won just five games over the last two seasons under the leadership of Fedora.

Two fishing boats that came to the aid of passengers were overwhelmed with people and capsized, according to the BBC. Among the survivours of the accident is Prince David Wasajja, brother to Buganda king Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II.

He started 1-10 in each of his first two seasons, but steadily built up the program through strong recruiting, particularly with instate prospects. And from 1992, until his final year there in 1997, Brown helped lead the Tar Heels to five consecutive bowl games.

Brown won 69 games during his run as North Carolina coach from 1988-97, good for second in program history. Texas went 8-4 this year and Brown's final game will be the December 30 Alamo Bowl against Oregon. He has always been regarded as one of college football's most wide-open and top offensive coaches.

Brown will be introduced as the Tar Heels' head football coach at a noon press conference. He is set for induction in the College Football Hall of Fame next week.
