UNC DC Gene Chizik Discusses Defensive Depth

Defensive coordinator commented about the present - and future of - Carolina's defense after Wednesday's practice.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Gene Chizik is putting the finishing touches on preparations for his Tar Heel defense's second season.

There are key upperclassmen that are going to be counted on for leadership and big plays at each position group in 2016, but backing up those established players is talented youth that is expected to contribute this season and lead the program in the years to come.

Chizik says UNC's young defensive players - which comprise the unit's depth - have a talented future ahead, but right now there's still a lot to learn.
