New Coach for Tar Heel Football in 2007

The John Bunting Era is officially over at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

According to Chapel Hill sources, Athletics Director Dick Baddour met with Bunting Sunday, where he told the coach that he would be relieved of his duties. Bunting will finish out the rest of the season at the helm of the Tar Heels, but no word on what will happen to his contract which still has three years left in it. This is Bunting's sixth season, as Head Coach.
