The 67-year-old won 69 games during his nine-year stint as Tar Heels head coach between 1988 and 1997, recording three bowl victories, as well as three 10-win seasons and consecutive top-10 finishes in his final two seasons before becoming head coach at the University of Texas.

The 67-year-old, who won the national championship in 2005 with Vince Young as his quarterback, is now working as an analyst at ESPN.

According to Inside Carolina, North Carolina plans to hire Mack Brown as its next football coach.

Once at Texas, Brown coached a Heisman Trophy victor in Ricky Williams, then another Heisman finalist - Vince Young - led the Longhorns to a 13-0 season in 2005 that ended with a win against USC in a Rose Bowl classic for the national title.

His 16-season stay at Texas was highlighted by national championships in the 2005 and '09 seasons.

While Brown would inherit a UNC program in desperate need of a turnaround, there is at least one bit of good news for him: the school has been finishing construction on a new indoor football practice facility with adjoining outdoor fields - a complex that was supposed to open this season but hit delays - as part of a $115 million athletics facility project.
