If a recent report is to be believed, Mack Brown wants to be a head coach again — and he wants to return to a program he once led.

No, he’s not going back to Texas.

The Longhorns and head coach Tom Herman will face Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game next Saturday at AT&T Stadium.

The school he wants to return to is North Carolina, according to a report from Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman.

UNC announced the firing of head coach Larry Fedora Sunday. In his seven seasons leading the Tar Heels, Fedora produced a 45-43 record.

Bohls believes that Brown would try and bring Kliff Kingsbury with him in order to fill the role of offensive coordinator.

Texas Tech announced the firing of Kingsbury on Sunday. During his time as head coach of the Red Raiders, he produced 35-39 record.

Before taking over at Texas, Brown was the head coach at North Carolina. In 10 seasons, he went 69-46-1. The Tar Heels were ranked in the top 10 in Brown’s final two seasons in Chapel Hill.
