Cignetti Right Man, Right Time

Now it's Cignetti's turn to get the job he recommended someone else for five years ago. The 40-year-old coach was hired Tuesday as the Tar Heels' new offensive coordinator. He'll receive $200,000 a year and has a three-year contract. "I have never chased a job," Cignetti says. "I'm one who believes if things are meant to happen, they happen. But I knew this job was coming open, and when I got the call from Coach Bunting, I was ecstatic." (Tar Heel Blue)
