KUsports.com is reporting that Defensive Coordinator Bill Young has accepted a job at the University of Miami as the same position. While KUSports has been burned before on "scoops" like this, I would imagine that they were especially careful with this one, given their recent issues.
You can read the story here:
The gist of it seems to be that Mr. Young enjoys the reclamation aspects of the position, and is ready for a new challenge after completing a Top 10 season with the Jayhawks.
Of course, the extra money can't hurt either. Not to mention the opportunity to work with premier athletes. Even with their recent down turn, "The U" is still an NFL factory, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
I expect the 'Canes to be a dominant defensive football team in the coming years once again, and wish Coach Young the best of luck in doing so.
As for us, we once again put our faith behind Mangino to go out and find another brilliant football mind. It'll be interesting to see if he promotes from within the program, or looks for outside help. Here's hoping whomever we do hire can help in continuing to upgrade the quality of players we recruit into the program.
