Brown agreed to terms to become the next head coach at North Carolina, a source told ESPN on Monday night, but his return was pending approval by the university's board.

Brown would replace Larry Fedora, who was sacked after seven seasons and a 45-43 record, including a 2-9 mark this season. Brown, who signed a five-year deal that will pay him $3.5 million annually, replaces Larry Fedora, who was sacked Sunday after seven seasons. From 1988 to 1997, Brown led the Tar Heels to a record of 69-46-1.

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.

Ticket prices for next season's opener were recently announced with prices for Gamecock Club members starting from $59. A press conference to (re-) introduce the coach is planned for noon. Brown was the 1996 ACC Coach of the Year. "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". Over his final two seasons in Chapel Hill, Brown's UNC squads went a combined 20-3. Those Longhorns teams went 158-48 in Brown's tenure; on two occasions Texas played in the national title game.

He had his biggest success with the Longhorns, winning the national championship in 2005 with Vince Young as his quarterback. That capped a second straight down year for the Tar Heels. In both of those seasons, North Carolina finished inside the top 10 of the final AP Poll.
