Extra Points: Where Davis Leads, Heels and Their Fans Follow

UNC now has a proven head coach in the person of Butch Davis and is giving him the resources to do the job. No more assistants promoted from within (a la Jim Hickey and Carl Torbush); no more star-searches on hiring coaches from mid-majors (Dick Crum and Mack Brown); no more experiments on assistants from established powers (Bill Dooley from Georgia); no more forays into the ranks of blue-bleeding alumni (John Bunting). Many of those moves worked out well in the end, but each had a certain roll-of-the-dice quality to them. (Tar Heel Blue)
