Mandatory Credit Doug Pensinger /Allsport

Brown was originally hired at UNC in 1988 and led the Tar Heels to three 10-win seasons and three bowl victories before being hired away by Texas in 1998.

Once at Texas, Brown coached a Heisman Trophy victor in Ricky Williams, then another Heisman finalist - Vince Young - led the Longhorns to a 13-0 season in 2005 that ended with a win against USC in a Rose Bowl classic for the national title. Fedora compiled a 45-43 record in seven seasons at UNC.

He will be announced as the new coach on Tuesday at a school press conference.

In response to the revelation on the plea agreement, Stone told ABC News that he is not aware of any plea talks involving Corsi. Stone told the Post in October that Corsi met with Trump in 2016 and that Mueller seemed interested in those meetings.

"We are excited about his plans for our football program, and I am thrilled to welcome Coach Brown and wife Sally back to Chapel Hill". Miles and Brown left retirement from the world of college football coaching to rejoin the Power Five ranks in the past two weeks.

UNC (re-) introduces Mack Brown as head football coach and Jeff Gravley is there. Brown also reportedly has already begun to assemble his coaching staff in preparation for returning to UNC, some two decades after his first tenure with the school ended. There he led the Longhorns to 158 wins and a national championship during a 16-year run that included nine straight 10-win seasons.

Brown parted ways with Texas following the 2013 season after the Longhorns failed to reach 10 wins in each of his final four seasons.
