The new college football season starts tonight (Friday, August 26, 2016) in, of all places, Sydney, Australia with a game between Hawaii and a Jared Goff-less California. ESPN has the broadcast at 10:00 p.m. EST.
Tim Bechman, fired a year ago by Illinois for mistreating his players, will not be serving as a volunteer coach for nationally-ranked North Carolina. He lasted one day. Beckmann was going to scout and do film work. He would not have coached per se but would have interacted with players.
Basically head coach Larry Fedora wanted him but the university, in an apparent change of heart, said no.
