CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina interim coach Everett Withers says he's talked with Ohio State about joining Urban Meyer's staff.
Withers said Wednesday he's "disappointed" that he isn't the permanent choice to lead the UNC football program. But he said coaches "learn to move on fast," adding that nothing is official with Ohio State yet but it's "working that way."
North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham interviewed Withers before hiring Larry Fedora from Southern Mississippi. That leaves Withers and his staff to prepare for the Dec. 26 game against Missouri in the Independence Bowl knowing it's their last at UNC.
Withers took over when the school fired Butch Davis before the season amid an NCAA investigation into the program. Withers led the Tar Heels (7-5) to a fourth straight bowl game.
