North Carolina rewarded head coach Mack Brown with a contract extension that takes his deal through January 2028.

The Tar Heels won nine games in 2022 and went 6-0 in true road games to claim the ACC Coastal Division title.

“Mack has re-energized our program in so many ways – from the team camaraderie in the locker room, to the engaged fan base in the stands, to this season’s Coastal Division Championship and nine-win finish,” athletic director Bubba Cunningham said. “We know that under his leadership, our student-athletes will continue to succeed on the field and in the classroom while giving back to the community. We appreciate all he and Sally have done to help build a positive culture around Carolina Football.”

USA Today reported Brown’s annual salary is $5.1 million.
