UNC Football Springs Forward

The Tar Heel football team hits the field Wednesday for spring number three under Larry Fedora. The Heels will practice 15 times this spring, culminating in the annual spring scrimmage on April 15 at 3 p.m. at Kenan Stadium. The head coach can’t wait to get started to try to continue the momentum from a team that finished 2013 by winning six of their final seven games. (GoHeels.com)

North Carolina Tar Heels 2014 Spring Football Preview

Despite being one of the few quarterbacks in the ACC that returns with any starting experience, there is no guarantee that Marquise Williams will get the call for the season opener against Liberty. Even though Williams helped spark his team to a strong finish last fall, the junior finds himself in a battle this spring with sophomore Kanler Coker and redshirt freshman Mitch Trubisky.

UNC Offseason Report: Defense

UNC associate head coach for defense Vic Koenning, not known as one who easily sings the praises of his charges, was upbeat about the potential for a good offseason on defense. In particular he was excited about increased depth across the board, enough bodies so that the Tar Heels should be able to practice “sub packages” during the spring. (Inside Carolina)

Spring Football Officially Hits For Carolina Amidst High Hopes

With Blue Dawn behind them, the Tar Heels open up spring practice Wednesday at Navy Fields. After a solid recruiting class that seemingly shored up a few holes on the squad and with a bunch of returning athletes, especially on the offensive end, Carolina football appears to be primed for a run at an ACC Championship in 2014.

Larry Fedora to Drive Pace Car for STP 500 at Martinsville

UNC football coach Larry Fedora became a NASCAR fan watching the sport on television. He fell head-over-heels in love with it during a trip to Martinsville Speedway last spring. “Last year at Martinsville was my first short-track race and it was phenomenal,” said Fedora. Fedora will be in the middle of all the Martinsville action as the honorary pace car driver for the STP 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race on March 30. (Martinsville Speedway)

Q&A with former UNC tight end Eric Ebron

Eric Ebron: As a kid, what you expect out of the NFL is not exactly what you’re getting into. It’s been nothing but a grind just like as if you were still in college. It’s been a journey. It’s been a process — a long process. You have training for combine, then after the combine, you have training for pro day, then you have to train for the NFL season. There’s different things that you have to accomplish. (Daily Tar Heel)

Offseason spotlight: North Carolina

The quarterback competition is open in Chapel Hill, N.C., but there could be some young faces on the offensive line this fall with even more to prove than quarterback Marquise Williams. For North Carolina, all eyes should be on the offensive line this spring, which could have a true freshman in the starting lineup for the season opener against Liberty. (ESPN.com)

Eric Ebron Hopes to Be More Than Just an Ordinary NFL Tight End

Being more than ordinary sums up Eric Ebron, who broke North Carolina tight end receiving records in his junior season with 62 catches and 973 receiving yards. If those sound more like receiver numbers than tight end numbers, that's because Ebron was far more like a receiver in head coach Larry Fedora's offense than a traditional (read: ordinary) tight end.

UNC Announces Spring Football Events

With North Carolina's Blue Dawn winter workouts in the rear view mirror, the Tar Heels are set to start spring football practice on Wednesday, March 5. The Tar Heels will conduct 15 spring practices, including open scrimmages in Charlotte (March 28) and Greensboro (April 4) and the annual Spring Game at Kenan Stadium on April 12. (GoHeels.com)

Sticking with Tar Heels paid NFL dividends for Eric Ebron

Eric Ebron’s mother, Gina Jackson, will occasionally ask her son if he has a preference of where he plays professionally. The former North Carolina tight end is a lock for the first round, and he will likely be the first tight end taken in May’s draft. Mock drafts have him going ninth to the Bills, or 12th to the Giants or 17th to the Ravens. (Charlotte Observer)

Eric Ebron Among Top NFL Combine Standouts

9) Eric Ebron, Tight end, North Carolina: Ebron ran well (4.6 40) and did a good job catching the ball. There is still some question about his sturdiness as a blocker, as he looked to be on the thin side; that said, he also looked like he could put on another 20 pounds or so with ease. He might not have boosted his stock much, but he definitely cemented his place as a likely first-round pick. (NFL.com)
