Brown will be part of a press conference at noon in Chapel Hill. WFMY News 2 will carry the press conference live on its Facebook page and website.
Brown, 67, coached at UNC from 1988 to 1997 and compiled a 69-46-1 record, winning ACC Coach of the Year in 1996. The Tar Heels finished in the top 10 in national polls in 1996 and 1997. Brown needs just four wins to break Dick Crum's UNC record for career coaching victories.
