David Thornton embracing advisor role at UNC
Thu Sep 15, 2011
A college football player is apt to listen to an NFL player who spent a decade in the league. That's what UNC is hoping after former Tar Heel David Thornton took an advisory role with the team. "A few months ago, I was planning on doing what retired people do, and that's relax and chill," Thornton said. When interim head football coach Everett Withers called Thornton for a job on the UNC football staff, he felt the timing could not have been better.
