Tarheels football coach having chemotherapy

 UNC Tarheels

North Carolina football coach Butch Davis is having chemotherapy after a dentist removed a cancerous grown from his mouth.

Davis wasn't aware he had the growth until he saw his dentist last month for a routine cleaning. A biopsy diagnosed it as non--Hodgkins lymphoma.

Follow up exams revealed no spreading of the cancer. The treatments are a precaution.
