    looks like everybody's been dumped so far minus Thig, Scott, and Gillespie, and unsurprisingly all indications are Thig will be retained

    Sources with direct knowledge tell FootballScoop Mack Brown is hiring Greg Robinson to be North Carolina’s defensive coordinator.

    This will be Robinson’s third tour of duty for Brown. He coordinated Brown’s defense at Texas in 2004 and 2013.

    This will be the second familiar name to join Brown’s UNC staff, as former Texas staffer Tim Brewster left Texas A&M to re-join Brown on Wednesday.

    In 2004, Robinson (along with Dick Tomey) was hired to re-vitalize the Texas defense and instantly succeeded, helping the Longhorns to a 12-1 reason — the one loss coming 12-0 to Oklahoma — with a Rose Bowl victory.

    That success led Robinson to the head coaching job at Syracuse, where he remained from 2005-08.

    After two seasons at Michigan and one working with a high school program in California, Robinson returned to the game in 2013 after Brown fired Manny Diaz mid-season. Robinson helped turned the tide of the season, as Texas rebounded to play Baylor for the 2013 Big 12 championship in the final game of the regular season.

    Brown resigned after the 2013 campaign, and Robinson would go on to spend the 2014-15 campaigns as the defensive coordinator at San Jose State.

    Robinson has been out of the game for the past two seasons

    It's important to remember that since this season, Greg Robinson has spent as many seasons as an assistant high school coach as he has as an (interim) DC at a Power 5 program.

    a couple years ago when manny diaz' defense gave up 500 yards rushing by taysom hill, he brought in greg robinson. to his credit, the defense actually improved.

    that's all i can add. this is just so, so sad.

    Not really been mentioned on our sites. He's got a lot of UNC connections so he'll definitely listen but it would seem like a tough sell given that he won't have relationships with most of your staff.

    I mean probably. He was a UNC lean early in his recruitment for the usual reasons. He’s supposed to have his OV with us this weekend so I’d imagine he’ll either no show and flip eventually or we’ll get him locked up and sign him in the early period.

    Tobias PackPride guy just posted about Clark. in short he said Doeren spoke with him right after Mack left today and that they don't think he's wavering at all because he's super close with our committed class right now and appreciates how long State has been recruiting him.

    Obviously, anything can happen in recruiting.

    Not impressed yet. That said, co-DC's is MUCH better than a combination O-line coach/O-coordinator.

    Had one of them been retired/coaching high school more seasons out of the past 7 than he'd been coaching college football at the time of hire

    Also, Thigpen isn't exactly known as a coach and I'm not sure Robinson is the guy you want "grooming" him.

    This was posted a couple of days ago when someone asked about Clark flipping, and no idea how credible it is.

    "LOL. Clark just had labrum surgery and will be doing his rehab in Raleigh. He's also already gotten his room at College Inn, and his roomates picked out. He will enroll in less than a month. UNC has no DLine coach, No coordinator and Clark doesnt even know who Mack is... yeah im sure he will flip lol."

    Alright here's the deal, everybody sucks at defense nowadays anyway, so really all that matters is the OC hire
