    Leaky’s defense in the second half was what flipped the game for me. Coby is going to get run through pick and roll almost every possession until he figures out how to effectively guard - and it’s a liability.

    I know Roy does this every year and it generally works out by March but good lord can his substitution patterns be infuriating. Coby has 8 straight points? Please sit for 6 minutes of game time right away. Luke hits his first shots all week? Get to the bench ASAP!

    the ability to announce this hire so quickly is a big reason for it too. we need to get a good recruiter in place IMMEDIATELY to possibly save this class before signing day.

    there's a thread on ic that looks to be getting updated slowly with new names

    The following coaches have been shared behind the scenes as candidates in play for Mack Brown’s staff. While speculation abounds, our intent is provide only those assistant coaches who we have confirmed are under serious consideration. Inside Carolina will be updating this potential staff list in the days/week to come as more names enter the pool. Names are listed in alphabetical order.

    Jay Bateman
    Current role: Army Defensive Coordinator
    Potential UNC role: Defensive Coordinator

    On Sept. 22, Army nearly pulled off an improbable upset of high-octane Oklahoma in Norman before falling, 28-21, in overtime. The Sooners scored touchdowns on their first three possessions before the Knights held Lincoln Riley’s offense scoreless over the final 34:25 of regulation. The man credited with slowing down the Sooners despite overmatched personnel was defensive coordinator Jay Bateman. A year after finishing third nationally in red zone defense, Bateman’s defense ranks third nationally in third down defense and 16th in scoring defense. The 41-year-old is an up-and-comer with a reputation for a cutting edge approach to defensive scheme. Bateman has North Carolina ties as well – he served as Elon’s defensive coordinator from 2006-2010. He was announced as a finalist for the Broyles Award, given to the nation's top assistant, on Monday.

    Tim Brewster
    Current role: Texas A&M Tight Ends Coach/Recruiting Coordinator
    Potential UNC role: Assistant Coach

    Brewster got his start as an assistant coach under Mack Brown at UNC, where he coached tight ends and special teams from 1989-1997. The Phillipsburg, N.J. native followed Brown to Texas for four years before trying his hand at the NFL ranks with the San Diego Chargers in 2002. Brewster took the Minnesota Golden Gophers head coaching job in 2007 and was let go after posting a 15-30 record in four seasons. Brewster, known for being a tireless recruiter, worked under Jimbo Fisher at Florida State from 2013-2017 and followed Fisher to College Station for the 2018 season.

    Gene Chizik
    Current role: TV Analyst
    Potential UNC role: Defensive Coordinator

    What’s old is new again. Gene Chizik earned a reputation as one of the nation’s top defensive minds during coordinator stints at Auburn (2002-04) and Texas (2005-06) and played a significant role in UNC’s run to the ACC Championship Game in 2015. Chizik resigned in February 2017 to spend more time with his family. His daughters are in college and his son is a senior in high school. He has expressed an interest to return to coaching following his son’s high school graduation. He was Mack Brown’s defensive coordinator during Texas’s 2005 national championship season and he won another one as Auburn’s head coach in 2010.

    Patrick Suddes
    Current role: Auburn Assistant AD for Football
    Potential UNC role: Director of Player Personnel

    Background: Suddes served as Alabama’s associate director for football operations from 2007-12 before joining Mack Brown’s staff at Texas as director of player personnel in 2013. He left Austin to become Arizona State’s assistant AD for recruiting in 2014 before joining Gus Malzahn’s staff at Auburn as director of player personnel in 2016. He was promoted to assistant AD for football in June 2017. Suddes began his career as a recruiting intern at LSU under Saban in 2004 and followed his head coach to the Miami Dolphins NFL organization for a stint in 2005-06.

    Tommy Thigpen
    Current role: UNC Safeties Coach
    Potential UNC role: Assistant Coach

    Tommy Thigpen, who was a three-time All-ACC linebacker at UNC under Mack Brown, will have his first opportunity to work under his former head coach. The 47-year-old began his coaching career as a graduate assistant under Carl Torbush before coaching linebackers under John Bunting and Butch Davis. Add in his addition to Larry Fedora’s staff in January and he very well could become the first UNC staff member to work under five different head coaches. Thigpen also five spent five seasons at Tennessee, where he was named the 2013 National Recruiter of the Year by Rivals.com, after helping Gene Chizik lead Auburn to the 2010 national championship.

    from what i've read it seems like gene and bubba have had an ongoing relationship since he left so it would be awesome if he could come back for a couple years. really interested to see what we do at oc because i can't imagine mack is bringing much to the offensive scheme these days. love the mack hire though.

    Question on the ACC/B1G challenge. Is it just me or does UNC always end up with a tougher game than duke even though duke is ranked higher preseason? It seems like duke always plays an unranked team in this challenge while UNC always gets a much higher caliber opponent.

    Mack Brown might work out but I think you guys missed a serious opportunity. Why not roll the dice on Satterfield? A young up and coming coach, has spent his entire life in NC, by all indications would have LOVED to coach UNC. You get that one right and you have your guy for 20+ years. What were they scared of? Losing football support lol
