Mitch Trubisky to Take Part in Jon Gruden’s QB Camp

Jon Gruden’s QB Camp series, a signature element of ESPN’s annual pre-NFL Draft coverage, returns for its eighth year this spring. In the coming weeks, Gruden will welcome seven quarterbacks, including former UNC quarterback Mitch Trubisky, to ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando where he’ll spend time with each prospect in the film room and on the field.

5 Newcomers to Watch for UNC Football in 2017

Finding a replacement for quarterback Mitch Trubisky will be at the top of UNC coach Larry Fedora's priority list this spring.

Larry Fedora on Gene Chizik's departure, future of his defense

When Larry Fedora hired Gene Chizik to fix the UNC defense two years ago, it came with the understanding that it could be a temporary arrangement. Chizik left his family behind at Auburn to take the job, but never felt comfortable being so far away from them for so long. So after this last recruiting cycle ended, Chizik told Fedora he wanted to return home to his family. (

Report: Packers LB Julius Peppers ‘appears to be done in Green Bay’

Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Julius Peppers lined up for only 56.9 percent of the team’s defensive snaps in 2016, according to Football Outsiders, perhaps signaling the nine-time Pro Bowler will be allowed to test free agency this March. At least that’s the sense Rob Demovsky for is getting, writing Peppers “appears to be done in Green Bay” on Thursday. (All 22)

ACC football schedule review: North Carolina Tar Heels

Larry Fedora has turned North Carolina into a power player over the past two seasons, but 2017 represents a changing of the guard. Virtually every skill player who contributed on the offense is gone, as are Nazair Jones, Des Lawrence and defensive coordinator Gene Chizik. So, can the rebuilt Tar Heels of 2017 make some noise in the Coastal? (

Nick Weiler Among 2017 NFL Combine's Biggest Snubs

10. Nick Weiler, K, North Carolina: You might remember Weiler for his tomahawk chop celebration after drilling a 54-yarder to beat Florida State. He did not build on that moment with a great season (15 of 21 on field goals), but he was 7 of 10 from beyond 40 yards (3 of 5 from 50-plus). Four kickers, five punters and two long snappers are headed to the combine. (Sports Illustrated)

Ranking the ACC's Football-Basketball Coaching Duos for 2017

3. North Carolina: The Roy Williams critics point out that he’s been a head coach at Kansas and North Carolina — two schools where it’s hard NOT to win — but the fact remains that he’s averaged a staggering 28 wins in 28 seasons. Larry Fedora’s career has been highlighted by two very good seasons. He’s averaged an ordinary 7.2 wins in his other seven seasons. (Athlon Sports)

Massive overhaul on offense puts UNC in unique position

The sky is falling in Chapel Hill. That’s an easy way to look at the situation anyway. In the past two months, the Tar Heels lost a bowl game, waved goodbye to three important underclassmen (along with a host of talented seniors), endured rumors that head coach Larry Fedora wanted out and, most recently, had defensive coordinator Gene Chizik step down.
