Butch goes back to school

Former Browns head coach Butch Davis may actually land another job. Sources say he is close to an agreement that would make him the University of North Carolina’s new football head coach.

A deal “hadn’t yet been finalized, but it seems we’re headed in that direction,” the source told ESPN.com’s Mark Schlabach.

A source said an announcement of Davis’ hiring, barring late complications, could come as early as Monday.

FrankenButch obviousuly wasn’t cut out to handle an NFL head coaching job so I guess it’s good for him to return to the college ranks. One thing he’ll have difficulties with early on is recruiting. At the “U”, Davis could get pretty much every prospect he wanted because of Miami’s status and the state of Florida being a hotbed for quality high school football talent. Things will be a little different at North Carolina.
