UNC QBs coach Keith Heckendorff mic'd up, breaks down QB derby

Coaching is a funny business. 

After spending three seasons as a player development assistant on Larry Fedora's staff at North Carolina, Keith Heckendorff had to leave Chapel Hill and spend two months in Jonesboro, Ark., to get a promotion at North Carolina.

In December, Heckendorff followed Blake Anderson to Arkansas State with plans on being the Red Wolves' tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator. By February, Heckendorff was back in Tar Heel blue, serving as quarterbacks coach. 

The Tar Heels "introduced" Heckendorff to their fan base with a little get-to-know-you interview, along with mic'ing him up for a recent practice and having him break down the battle between junior Marquise Williams and redshirt freshman Mitch Trubisky to replace departed quarterback Bryn Renner.
