While the news of Hubert Davis’s hire was not a shock to those who follow UNC basketball closely, especially with the premium placed on the “Carolina Family,” the timing of the announcement was a bit of a surprise. No need to wait to interview coaches still in the tournament, Bubba Cunningham was ready to pull the trigger.

Coach Davis has about 15 minutes to bask in the love and well wishes of his friends, colleagues, and fans before he has to get to work fine-tuning his staff, talking to the current team to make sure everyone’s sticking around, then plunging into the transfer portal to fill out the roster. Best of luck, Coach!
