It was just a matter of time.

After having done a decent job of bringing in talent to the Tar Heel football program, the UNC athletic department had had enough of Bunting’s underachieving teams and notified the six-year head coach that his tenure in Chapel Hill would end after the Duke game this season.

It will certainly be fun to watch the Tar Heels seek out a vibrant head coach to take over the program, which on paper is a sleeping giant.
