Coach Bunting will not return in 2007

The official Tarheel website reports that John Bunting will not return in 2007. Carolina is in the middle of a tumultous season with only one win against Rutgers. The season began with high expectations with the arrival of offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti of Fresno State and a top 25 recruiting class. Apparently most of the freshmen were redshirted when they should have been playing and helping the tarheels win. “Changing coaches is never a pleasant experience, but it is even more difficult when you consider the character and integrity of someone like John Bunting,” says Dick Baddour, UNC athletic director. “I am disappointed and of course I don’t agree with the decision, but I know I must accept it,” says Coach Bunting. “My love for this great University has not and never will waver. I am very proud of the many great things we have accomplished over the past six years. We simply have not won enough games this year.” Me personally I am disappointed as well. I like John Bunting and his loyalty and dedication to his alma mater. Hopefully this won’t affect the status of quarterback Mike Paulus who has made a verbal commitment. I read in tarheel monthly that he is being pursued by other programs such as Ohio State and Oklahome and can’t make his commitment official until February. Read more about it here at
