Furr Transferring

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- North Carolina running back Hunter Furr plans to transfer.

"Hunter came to me this week and asked for his release," said interim head coach Everett Withers. "He is seeking an opportunity for more playing time and I respect his wishes. We've enjoyed having Hunter in the program and I wish him nothing but the best as he continues his college career."

"I would like to thank the entire Carolina coaching staff for their support and guidance over the last two years," said Furr. "I've enjoyed being a part of this program and I've developed several great relationships with my teammates and coaches. I feel it's in the best interest of my football career to transfer and compete for playing time at another institution. I have nothing but respect for Coach Withers and I believe he will do an outstanding job building the program."

The junior from Lewisville, N.C. totaled five carries for 30 yards last season.

He was listed second at running back on UNC's 2011 spring depth chart.
