The University of North Carolina has hired Mack Brown as its next head football coach.
According to 247Sports, Brown has agreed to a second tenure in Chapel Hill, and the program will make an announcement Tuesday.
The 67-year-old Brown is currently an analyst at ESPN. He was UNC’s head coach from 1988 to 1997 and led the Tar Heels to three 10-win seasons and three bowl victories before being hired away by Texas. He then coached in Texas until 2013.
Mack 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 only needs 20 more wins to move into sixth place on the all-time list.
Coach Brown will be replacing Larry Fedora.
