It just seems so weird that one of the legendary head coaches of late for the Texas football program will join another former team of his in the UNC Tar Heels.

It's a Texas-sized signing for UNC: Larry Fedora is out as head coach and, according to reports, Mack Brown is in.

The job search for a new head coach at North Carolina may have already wrapped up, and a reunion with Mack Brown is reportedly all but official at this point. The announcement is schedule to take place on Tuesday (Nov. 27).

Brown compiled a record of 69-46-1 during his first stint as North Carolina's head coach from 1987-97.

Brown left Texas in 2013 and has been working in broadcasting in recent years. Brown coached UNC to four top 25 finishes in the AP Top 25, and four of the five top 25 seasons on Chapel Hill since 1983.

Later that day, rumors surfaced that the ex-Texas Longhorns head coach would replace him.

Barcelona would be forced to pay an additional £89m in order to sign any Liverpool players before 2020, it has been revealed. Under the agreement, that move can't materialise unless Liverpool choose to offer him to clubs, including Barcelona .

Brown's two most successful seasons came in his last two years at the helm, when UNC combined for a 20-3 record.

He went on to spend 16 seasons at Texas, where he won the national championship for 2005.

The 67-year-old College Football Hall of Famer led the Tar Heels from 1988 up until 1997.

Since he left Texas, Brown has entered into broadcasting and is now a college football analyst for ESPN. Fedora did wear out his welcome in Chapel Hill, NC, hence the move to bring someone aboard like Brown.

After two 1-win seasons, he turned the Tar Heels around, leading them to eight winning seasons, including three with 10 wins and six straight bowl games.
