North Carolina has hired Nebraska’s Jovan Dewitt as its outside linebackers coach and special teams coordinator. UNC announced Dewitt’s hire Monday after Dewitt spent the past two seasons in the same role with the Huskers.
Dewitt’s special teams have seven punt or kickoff returns for touchdowns in the past four seasons along with four blocked punts over the past two years.
Dewitt also worked with current UNC defensive coordinator Jay Bateman at Army in 2014 and 2015. Dewitt replaces Scott Boone in the role on Mack Brown’s staff.
