Mogridge to Join UNC Staff

Allen Mogridge will be the third offseason addition to Butch Davis' coaching staff. Inside Carolina confirmed Monday through sources close to the situation that Mogridge is leaving his position at the University of Buffalo to join the UNC staff.

Mogridge, 32, played football at North Carolina from 1995-99 at a number of positions -- tight end, offensive tackle, fullback, defensive end and linebacker.

Following his playing career, he spent one year on the UNC strength and conditioning staff. And after a year of playing professional football (AFL), he joined the Buffalo coaching staff -- where he's remained for seven of the last eight seasons.

The Severville, Tenn. native has most recently worked with the offensive line and running backs, and has held the duty of recruiting coordinator.

The Tar Heel program had three assistant coach positions to fill this offseason after the departures of special teams coach and defensive assistant John Lovett (Miami), linebackers coach Tommy Thigpen (Auburn) and tight ends coach Steve Hagen (NFL - Cleveland).

UNC made decisions last week to hire Troy Douglas from South Florida and Art Kaufman from Southern Miss. Those hirings have not yet been announced by the University.
