In his former life as a quarterback, football practices drained Joe Dailey's brain so much that school assignments had to be put on hold until the dawn hours of the next morning.
UNC's Dailey happy in new role of receiver

UNC men's basketball coach Roy Williams said last season that given a choice between experience and talent, he would choose talent.
Carolina first-year football coach Butch Davis would probably make the same decision, but he didn't have an option for his secondary. He can only hope there is enough talent to compensate for the inexperience.
Big strides to be made

North Carolina may be working the out-of-state angle harder than ever under first-year coach Butch Davis and his recruiting coordinator John Blake. Blake, the former head coach at Oklahoma, is known as a master recruiter. To take advantage of that, Davis has assigned Blake to most of UNC's nationally prominent recruits.
Out-of-state recruiting vital for North Carolina schools

Before he could spend a decade in Austin, Mack Brown coached 10 years at North Carolina. It wasn't pretty in the beginning; his first two teams produced back-to-back 1-10 seasons. By the time he left in 1997, North Carolina football was at an all-time high, scoring back-to-back seasons of double-digit victories and a No. 6 ranking in the final AP poll in 1997. The only knock on Brown at North Carolina was he couldn't beat Florida State, going 0-6 against the Seminoles during his tenure.
So where's the program gone since then? Decidedly south.
Things were finer for Carolina with Mack
