UNC Firsts: The Tar Heels’ first football coach

1888 was UNC’s first football season, and Hector Cowan’s career at Princeton was not over, either. So, the first football coach in the history of the University of North Carolina was still a player at another college. Cowan radically changed how UNC played, but he only coached two games at UNC before returning to finish his playing career at Princeton. (Tar Heel Blog)
