New coach Dré Bly, a former star cornerback, remembers his UNC ‘rude boy’ days (it’s a mindset)

When Dré Bly played at North Carolina in the late 1990s, he helped make popular the phrase “rude boy,” the name adopted by UNC’s defensive backs. Bly, who was hired to coach defensive backs at UNC this month, was an All-America cornerback. And he helped the Tar Heels become one of the most feared defenses in the country during Mack Brown’s first stint at UNC. (Charlotte Observer)
