A lot of talk has been made this offseason about the number of holes that will need to be filled on offense, due to players graduating or leaving early for the NFL. However, another area on the UNC Football team that will need to replace a number of weapons is special teams.
Over the last few years, we have become accustomed to seeing Ryan Switzer returning punts for touchdowns, Mack Hollins sprinting down the field to make tackles on punt/kickoff coverage, Nick Weiler splitting the uprights on field goals and extra points, and T.J. Logan using his speed/quickness on kickoff returns. Unfortunately, for the football team and Tar Heel fans, those players will no longer be running out of the tunnel in Kenan Stadium this upcoming season.
