Brown’s salary in 2020 was $3.5 million, and it doesn’t sound like that’ll change under the new deal.

This is a great call by UNC. For the first time in seemingly forever, the Tar Heels are finally relevant on the gridiron.

Behind Sam Howell’s majestic arm and under Brown’s leadership, the Tar Heels are rolling better than they have traditionally.

Brown also brings serious name recognition to the program. After all, he won a national title when he was coaching the Texas Longhorns.

It might be in the past, but Brown is still the biggest name the Tar Heels will be able to get. When you get a guy like him and he’s winning, then you don’t let him go.

With Howell back under center in 2021, you can bet UNC is in for another solid season.
