Just two days after naming a co-defensive coordinator, Mack Brown and his staff were back to work again Tuesday.
Brown and the North Carolina football team have named Phil Longo as the team's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Brandon Jones has also been hired to coach the offensive line and Lonnie Galloway will coach the wide receivers. Brown made the announcement Tuesday afternoon.
"Phil Longo, Lonnie Galloway and Brandon Jones are three outstanding coaches, recruiters, teachers and mentors of young men," Brown said in a statement. "Phil has been one of the most successful play callers in college football for many years and at every level."
Longo first made national headlines while at FCS program Sam Houston State (2014-2016). During his three seasons with the program, the Bearkats made the playoffs in each campaign.
In 2015, Sam Houston State set a Southland Conference season record with 7,975 yards. The mark ranked third all-time in NCAA Division 1 FCS history.
