North Carolina is going back in time with their new coaching hire.

Mack Brown will be the new head coach at North Carolina according to multiple reports after Larry Fedora's firing on Sunday.

Brown coached at UNC from 1988-1997 and had a record of 69-46-1 during that time. He also had a 16-year run at Texas and recently had been working as an ESPN studio analyst the last five seasons.

He will be announced as the new coach on Tuesday at a school press conference.

Fedora had four years left on his contract and is owed $3 million per season ($12 million total) on his buyout. Since UNC's 2015 ACC title loss against Clemson, his team went downhill with only 13 wins and 23 losses.

North Carolina lost 34-28 to their rival North Carolina State on Saturday.
