After agreeing to terms with North Carolina, Mack Brown officially became the program’s next football coach. On Tuesday, a day after word of his hiring started to really surface, Brown was introduced to the media.
A few minutes prior to the start of that press conference, though, the details of the terms between Brown and UNC were kicked out. These come courtesy of my guy Chip Patterson over at CBS Sports.
Mack Brown terms: 5-years, 750,000 base salary, $2M supplemental compensation, $200K from Nike, $500K for Coaches Show, $50K for expenses

According to this tweet from Patterson, Brown’s deal is five years, in terms of length — with a base salary of $750,000. All in all, that’s fairly inexpensive for a Power Five coach. This works in a few ways, too. One, North Carolina is currently on the hook for $12.2 million to Larry Fedora in buyout cash, which is to be paid over the next four years. There is, however, some offset language in that agreement.
Secondly, this could mean more money to build a staff around the 67-year-old Brown. That process will be key for Brown and a new era of UNC football.
