Shaun Draughn set to begin NFL career; shocked by Butch Davis' firing

Tarboro native Shaun Draughn was leaving the Washington Redskins’ practice facility Wednesday evening when he heard the news his former coach at UNC, Butch Davis, had been fired. “I was shocked,” said Draughn, who learned of Davis’ firing from current Tar Heel defensive lineman Linwan Euwell, along with Tarboro High senior Todd Gurley. “I loved coach Davis. Everybody respected him. He changed our whole attitude about winning.” (Rocky Mount Telegram)
