Mack Brown is returning to North Carolina as its head football coach, 247Sports' Inside Carolina reported Monday, citing unidentified sources. A press conference to (re-) introduce the coach is planned for noon. Those Longhorns teams went 158-48 in Brown's tenure; on two occasions Texas played in the national title game. Fedora's fate may have been determined prior to Saturday's regular season finale against NC State, thanks in part to Cunningham and North Carolina having the next move already lined up.

If he's able to assemble that kind of staff, it not only could awaken the Tar Heels and their fan base, but also serve as a warning that Brown is serious about trying to threaten the ACC's current dominant power, Clemson, among others. Brown seemed to be content in retirement after a very long coaching career that ended after the 2013 campaign with Texas football.

Former Texas coach Mack Brown could be eyeing a return to coaching, according to multiple reports.

Brown led a lengthy period of success with the Longhorns, including winning the 2005 BCS national title in the infamous Rose Bowl game against USC. The Longhorns have had four straight seasons with at least four losses.

Since he left Texas, Brown has entered into broadcasting and is now a college football analyst for ESPN.
