Mogridge Named Recruiting Coordinator

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- Allen Mogridge has been named North Carolina's football recruiting coordinator, head coach Butch Davis announced Thursday. Mogridge is in his second year on the Tar Heels' staff as the tight ends coach and special teams coordinator.

"I'm thrilled to have this opportunity," said Mogridge, a four-year letterwinner at UNC from 1996-99. "North Carolina is a special place with great people and it's an honor to recruit to this University. We have an outstanding staff of assistant coaches who have proven to be excellent recruiters. We will recruit the best student-athletes who will represent this University with character and integrity. "

Mogridge, who earned a bachelor's degree in history at UNC in 1999, also served as a recruiting coordinator at Western Carolina and Buffalo before joining the Carolina coaching staff in 2009.

"Allen is the perfect person for this job," said Davis. "He is organized, has lots of energy and enthusiasm, and relates well to the student-athletes. As a former player, he knows this University as well as anyone and is an outstanding representative of UNC. Our staff is excited to have him as our recruiting coordinator."

A native of Sevierville, Tenn., Mogridge played four different positions - tight end, fullback, offensive tackle, defensive end - during his career and earned the Kenan Award for Leadership in his senior season. He went to four bowl games as a Tar Heel, including the 1996 and 1997 Gator Bowls. Carolina was a combined 21-3 over those two seasons and finished No. 4 in the final USA Today coaches poll in 1997.
