#ACCKickoff: North Carolina’s Mack Brown (AUDIO)

(ACC/Jaylynn Nash)

UNC head coach Mack Brown addressed the media at the ACC Kickoff in Charlotte, Thursday. The Tar Heels are one of few ACC teams that won’t return its quarterback (Sam Howell) this fall. Additionally, North Carolina will have to replace four offensive linemen, its tight end and running back. But Brown is optimistic that whichever signal caller takes the reins this season, whether it’s Jacoby Criswell (Gatorade Player of the Year, Arkansas) or Drake Maye (Gatorade Player of the Year, North Carolina), will find success.
