Wish MB the best of luck.  The key for him will be hiring really good coordinators, it'll be interesting to see who he brings onto his staff.

Huh, and all this time I thought NC was a stepping stone on the way to Texas.  Now I guess it’s the other way ‘round?  

Just remember that it was Mack Brown who made Texas great again

For awhile

Makes sense.  Another underperforming flagship state school, unless Mack has switched to coaching hoops

Not sure UNC is capable of "underperforming" in football.  Aside from Mack Brown's successful first run there, they've certainly never been considered a football school.

Now roundball, on the other hand...

Which is why this is perfect for Mack - since he chooses not to hang up his whistle.  Maybe he is bucking for AD at UNC eventually.  I just don't see Mack Brown as HC to be the long-term outlook here.  But at any rate, there won't be the immediate pressure to WIN like Texas would be.

There could be a master plan.  We already know he is ready to appoint someone as "coach-in-waiting" and he hasn't even been announced yet.  He's big on doing that for some reason, but it tells me this is only a 3-5 year gig by design.

Considering the fact that MB is 67 I tend to agree with you
only 3 or 4 HCs older
