Clay Travis of Outkick The Coverage recently published his top 25 list of the best coaching jobs in college football. It’s no surprise that a lot of big name programs made the list, with the Florida Gators being the number one job.
But Travis included the North Carolina Tar Heels on the list who ranked at number 25. He commented on how the Tar Heels are the best team in the state of North Carolina, and that one team is ready to break out of that state and become a powerhouse. He also refers to the Tar Heels being a “sleeping giant”.
Here is what Travis had to say:
I know, I know, the Tar Heels are consistently disappointing on the football field, but the state of North Carolina’s population continues to surge and at some point someone is going to get this right. Maybe it will be North Carolina State, maybe Duke will turn into a dynasty, but in the meantime, I’m ranking UNC as the top of the North Carolina football schools.
There are other schools I considered here — Iowa, Virginia Tech, Louisville among them — but ultimately I just came back to recruiting. North Carolina is a fertile recruiting field, much more so than the three schools I rejected and I ultimately think someone will win big there.
It may well be the last of the truly sleeping giants.
Do you think Fedora has the 25th best coaching job in all of college football? Let us know!
