"About an hour ago, I spoke to Coach [John] Bunting directly," Paulus said on Sunday evening. "He just said that they decided to move in another direction and that North Carolina is still a great institution for me. He still had a lot of great things to say about the school."
Paulus, a four star quarterback who committed to the Tar Heels last spring over many national offers, plans to take a wait-and-see approach before looking at other options.
"I'm going to talk to some people at North Carolina over the next couple of days administrative-wise and see what they are going to do with their coaching selection and what they are going to do with the assistant coaches as well. I really want to see a couple of them stay that I know well."
While he declined to mention any names, Paulus feels that two coaches at North Carolina staying would have a big impact on his final decision.
The announcement of John Bunting's resignation effective at the end of the season added to a tough game last Friday which ended the year for Christian Brothers.
"We got upset in the first round of the playoffs to Fayetteville-Manilus. We started off pretty bad and couldn't get back into it soon enough."
Paulus Will Wait and See
