What Could Have Been

This story has to sting Tar Heels a bit. Six years ago, when Carolina hired John Bunting, Pete Carroll, who has built a dynasty at USC, was available and very interested in the UNC job. Dick Baddour never called him.
Ouch.
In fairness, Carroll was hardly a juicy prospect at the time. Sure, he had been an NFL head coach, but he was fired after floundering in New England. He had never been a college head coach.
But then, John Bunting had never been a head coach at any level.
Oops.
