Matthew McConaughey on Mack Brown: “I keep an eye on the Tar Heels now much more so than I used to”

Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey and North Carolina football coach Mack Brown have a friendship and working relationship that extends back for more than a decade. Brown and McConaughey have known one another since 1998 — when Brown arrived in Austin, Texas to coach the Longhorns. McConaughey, 51, is a native Texas and an alum of the University of Texas.

For several years now, starting in 2013, McConaughey and Brown have partnered with country musician Jack Ingram for an annual fundraising event; Mack, Jack & McConaughey (MJ&M) was created to help fund children’s education, health and wellness.

On Tuesday, McConaughey joined Josh Graham on The Sports Hub (WSJS) to talk about his friendship with Brown, acting roles in sports movies, his new book (Greenlights), relationship advice and a whole bunch more.
