Brandon Fritts can be another valuable option for UNC football

UNC tight end Brandon Fritts enters his sophomore season after one redshirt year and a promising freshman year. With all the talk about other areas of the offense, it has been easy to forget that UNC and Larry Fedora have another potential playmaker in Fritts. He has the size to excel at blocking and contribute as a consistent weapon in the red-zone. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC Offensive Staff Sharing Play-Calling Duties

The inner workings of No. 20 North Carolina’s offensive play-calling have been a bit of a mystery ever since Seth Littrell left for North Texas in December.

Bill Dooley remembered as a 'maker of men'

What Rich Fox remembers most is the tears. Tears in his eyes — and those of his Virginia Tech teammates — as the players ran on the football field on Saturdays, their emotions stirred by Bill Dooley’s perfect locker room words. Some coaches can come up with a good inspirational speech once a year; Dooley seemed to be able to do it every week. (Roanoke Times)

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)

UNC's Right Guard Competition 'Fluid'

Redshirt freshman Tommy Hatton joins fourth-year juniors Brad Henson and R.J. Prince as the trio of offensive linemen looking to fill the massive load left by former All-ACC standout Landon Turner.

"You can't do it every once in a while," Fedora said,. (Associated Press)

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.
