The Athletic reported Brown was told by a someone close to him that a prominent agent has been promoting the rumor to “affect recruiting.”
“I was told by a friend of mine that a prominent agent has been telling people that I’m not going to be here next year in hopes that would affect recruiting because we’re recruiting so well,” the coach told Andy Staples.
Since returning to North Carolina in 2019, Mack Brown is 20-15.
Coming into the year, the Tar Heels cracked the top 10 in preseason polls. However, things for UNC went sideways early and the team currently sits at 5-5.
