Tar Heels News 8/10/16: Former UNC football coach Bill Dooley dies at 82

AFC-NFC Hall of Fame Game: Indianapolis Colts v Washington Redskins

Daily Tar Heel | C Jackson Cowart: Former UNC football coach Bill Dooley passed away on Tuesday at the age of 82. Dooley coached the Tar Heels to three ACC championships in his 11 seasons at Carolina. His 11-1 record in 1972 still stands as the program’s best season.

WRAL Sports Fan | Marilyn Payne: Mack Hollins continues to be a leader for the Tar Heels on the field, using his goofy personality to bring a higher level of energy to the team. Hollins claims that he has always been loud, but Marquise Williams was just louder. Now Hollins has stepped into that void as a vocal leader.

Sporting News | Mike DeCourcy: Carolina women’s soccer alum Crystal Dunn was instrumental in Team USA winning their group in Rio with a goal and an assist. Dunn was the final player left off the roster for the World Cup, but she has lit the soccer world on fire since then to prove her worth.

Inside Carolina | Greg Barnes: Defensive coordinator Gene Chizik has been tasked with rebuilding UNC’s defense. He implemented a base defense last season and plans to expand upon that in 2016. Chizik’s expectations for his defense are high, but he believes that they are making the necessary strides to get where they need to be.
