UNC has one of college sports’ best MBB/football coaching tandems

If you’re looking for a school with consistently productive athletic programs across the board, there’s few you could name with conviction besides the University of North Carolina.

Including sports like field hockey, lacrosse and women’s soccer, the Tar Heels always seem to be sending teams to the NCAA Tournament. Even with late-season collapses in recent years, UNC football sports plenty of high-end talent and consistently makes bowl games.

North Carolina is best known as a basketball school, with its men’s basketball team being one of the sport’s storied programs. The Tar Heels are looking to capture their seventh National Championship this year, kicking off NCAA Tournament play on Thursday, March 22 at 2:45 p.m. against Wagner.

With the success both UNC football and basketball have enjoyed over the years, Mack Brown and Hubert Davis were named CBS Sports’ fourth-best football/men’s basketball coaching tandem.

Brown and his football players wait until August 29 to kick off their season. The Gridiron Heels will be led offensively by Omarion Hampton, plus defensively by Kaimon Rucker.

In the Big Dance, North Carolina is trying to prove it deserves the West Region’s top seed. UNC will, undoubtedly, use last season’s disappointment as a motivating factor for another title.

Wouldn’t it be great if both Hubert and Mack won National Titles this season?
