Beers and stories with Bill Dooley

When he retired from coaching and settled into retirement in Wrightsville Beach, on the North Carolina coast, he originated and developed the Tri-Cities chapter of the National Football Foundation, which one year overtook the Athens-UGA chapter as the No. 1 chapter in the country. That chapter is now known as the “Bill Dooley” chapter. (Online Athens)

Turner's Take: X's, O's And Whys

"If you know the whys," safety Donnie Miles said, "you understand, if I don't hit this gap, how it messes up the defense, how it affects the other person. If I'm not doing my job as a safety, the corner can't use me as his help." That depth of knowledge is essential if North Carolina's defense is to take another step forward in 2016. (GoHeels.com)

How Bill Dooley Rebuilt A Program

Bill Dooley came to Chapel Hill in 1967 and rebuilt a football program that had sputtered since the Charlie Justice teams of the late 1940s. The Tar Heels had been to only one bowl game since 1949 when Dooley arrived on campus. He knew the program was in bad shape when he took the job and he started making changes in a hurry.

Sleepers no more, North Carolina looks to defense to step up and help it win big

Offensively, UNC is on par with each of their big-name opponents. Quarterback Mitch Trubisky , running back Elijah Hood and wide receiver Ryan Switzer lead a unit that has an experienced line and skill position talent for days. They'll be able to put up points and yards against almost anyone, but can the defense continue to balance its "bend-but-don't break" style? (CBS Sports)
