When Butch Davis resigned as head coach of the Cleveland Browns, the former Miami head man decided he would take some time away from coaching. At the ACC Football Kickoff on Monday, Davis told stories of how NFL coaches such as Dick Vermeil, Herm Edwards. and many others invited him to come sit in on team activities. The process of watching how "another coach skins the cat" (as he so eloquently put it), allows for a head coach to learn a little more about his own process and tactics.

That was the reason, Davis explained, he offered the same opportunity to recently removed Miami head coach Randy Shannon. The two have been friends for some time, and Davis said that Shannon visited with the team for a few days in the spring to sit-in on practice and other activities. As for Shannon's return to the sideline?

"[Shannon] will get back into coaching," Davis remarked. "He won't be out long."

Davis: Randy Shannon will get back into coaching

He may take Butch Davis' job at UNC.  The guy graduated kids at Miami, that's what it's all about.  He didn't have the best record but he did win. That's all Carolina could hope for after the NCAA will crush UNC with sanctions.  It's not going to be pretty when the NCAA drops the hammer.  They could care less about UNC. OU, OSU, Auburn, Texas, and others are the money makers for the NCAA, not UNC.
