A decade later, John Bunting finds peace in his post-football life

Outside the 3,600-square-foot house John Bunting and his wife had built after he lost the only coaching job he ever really wanted, a breeze rustles the boats in the marina. The Intracoastal Waterway is quiet on a Wednesday afternoon. Inside, Bunting is walking up the stairs, past framed pictures of a lifetime in football – there he is at North Carolina, and with the Philadelphia Eagles; there’s when he snapped his arm landing on Calvin Hill.He’s being inducted on Sunday into the Greater Wilmington Sports Hall of Fame. He’s expecting more than 90 people to come.

How UNC’s amended NOA affects men’s basketball, football

For nearly a year, UNC coach Roy Williams had said as much – that neither he nor his men’s basketball program nor anyone associated with it was named in the original notice of allegations that the NCAA delivered to UNC last May. He had said that there were no allegations against men’s basketball. Even so, it was something of a matter of semantics. Men’s basketball, after all, did appear in the original NOA, though Williams was correct that his program wasn’t specifically charged with wrongdoing. Now, though, it’s not semantics: There’s no mention of men’s basketball in the amended NOA UNC received on Monday.
