Ford feature in Chapel Hill News

Two years after losing his job as a University of North Carolina assistant coach, Ford holds a top-level position with UNC's Educational Foundation, also known as the Rams Club. He does game-day radio analysis for the Tar Heel Sports Network, and he enjoys the extra time he has with his wife, Traci, and his two children, daughter Tyler, 11, and son Mitchell, 10.

Sure, Ford said, he is keeping all options -- including the possibility of coaching again -- open. But he's not losing any sleep waiting for a phone call. Staying sober and keeping his priorities straight are the most important things in his life, said the 46-year-old Ford, who was once considered the best collegiate point guard in the country and who remains one of the best-loved, most recognized former UNC players.
