2006 Team Preview: North Carolina

John Bunting often likes to discuss North Carolina's place in what he calls "this new ACC." So it's fitting that in 2006, UNC's head coach will have three new faces on his coaching staff. The Tar Heels played their first five years under Bunting with Gary Tranquill as their offensive coordinator. When Tranquill retired, Bunting hired Frank Cignetti from Fresno State to replace him. Bunting went back to Fresno State to hire Mark Weber as offensive line coach when Hal Hunter left for the NFL, and he tapped former Virginia Tech assistant Danny Pearman to be the defensive ends coach when Brad Lawing took a job at South Carolina.
