Did you know that Everett Withers is the first black head football coach at North Carolina. In fact, he’s only the second black head coach in any sport in Chapel Hill.
North Carolina officials have stated that Withers will have the opportunity to compete for the permanent head coaching job, but Withers doesn’t seem interested in making a public push for the job.
At least, not yet.
During the David Glenn Radio Show, Withers talked about his approach. Withers said, “I’m gonna work every day like I’ve worked. I always thought as a football coach that you were day-to-day anyway.”
“My thought in that aspect is I’m going to come to work hoping I get the next day. So I’m going to have the same approach. Our focus is going to be helping these kids have the best experience they can have. If we can do that, regardless of what happens at the end of this thing, this thing will be a success for us.”
North Carolina opens the season by hosting James Madison. The Tar Heels will remain at home the following two weeks to host Rutgers and Virgina.
