UNC Adds Luke Paschall to Football Coaching Staff

The UNC football team welcomed back a familiar face to its football staff on Thursday, with the addition of former graduate assistant Luke Paschall.

He then served as wide receivers coach and special teams coordinator for the last four seasons under Anderson–winning two Sun Belt conference titles and making four straight bowl appearances–before getting the offer to work with Fedora...

Hines Helps NC State Run Past UNC in Tar Heel Football Season Finale

Looking to end the season on a high note with an upset victory on the road against a bitter rival, the UNC football team simply could not find a way to stop Nyheim Hines—who ran for a career-high 196 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday during NC State’s 33-21 victory over the Tar Heels.

Austin Proehl Makes Triumphant Return in UNC’s Victory Over Western Carolina

During the first quarter of UNC’s 27-17 loss to Duke back on Sept. 23, senior wide receiver Austin Proehl–the team’s top pass-catching option entering the season–caught a 47-yard pass from quarterback Chazz Surratt which put the Tar Heels deep into Blue Devil territory. Unfortunately for Proehl–and the Tar Heels, the senior broke his collarbone after being dragged down awkwardly. He missed the rest of that game, and each of UNC’s next six outings after that. The team’s official injury report had listed Proehl as being out for the season ever since then–until Saturday’s 65-10 win over Western Carolina. Much...
