CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Mack Brown has accomplished nearly everything a college coach could want, from winning a national championship to being inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
Yet the 67-year-old Brown is choosing to stand in the heat and thick humidity on the North Carolina practice fields, typing out notes on his smartphone while watching drills for the program he's charged with turning around once again.
Brown is back in college coaching for the first time since the 2013 season. His return comes at the same program he built into top-10 national status more than two decades earlier. It's familiar surroundings for Brown to reconnect with the profession he missed while working in broadcasting since last coaching at Texas.
