Reports: Phil Ford and NC State

Could the greatest Tar Heel basketball player of all time end up coaching at rival NC State? According to reports, it's now a possibility.

Just when you thought the N.C. State coaching search couldn't have another plot twist comes this one. Phil Ford, one of the greatest players in North Carolina basketball history, as well as a former Tar Heels assistant coach, apparently is under consideration to lead the Wolfpack program.

Asked Wednesday if he had been contacted by N.C. State, Ford said, "I don't feel like that's for me to say. That's for people at N.C. State to talk about. But I would be very flattered to be considered by N.C. State and I would do everything in my power to make N.C. State the best program in the country."
