Former Tar Heels coach Butch Davis is still waiting for a head NCAA coaching gig after being cleared in a 2011 scandal that rocked the UNC football program.
The NCAA slapped UNC with a one-year bowl ban and docked the Tar Heels 15 scholarships over three years for previously discovered improper benefits, including cash and travel accommodations, in March 2012. Davis was fired in July 2011. Subsequent investigations have cleared Davis of wrongdoing, but the coach feels as though he's being blackballed: "Guys get re-hired that have had trouble with kids and the NCAA. Guys that have gotten in trouble for being drunk, but the minute you say academics and a football coach, it's like you have leprosy. People are terrified that I had anything to do with it, and I didn't." CBS Sports reported that Davis had a high-profile job lined up before the school bailed on him at the last minute.
