North Carolina's football program has reportedly made a head coaching hire, landing former Texas head coach Mack Brown.

247Sports first reported the news of the hiring and North Carolina is expected to officially announce the decision soon.

Brown is a big name, obviously, and he's won a national championship, but not everyone is thrilled with North Carolina's decision.

ESPN personality Bomani Jones took to Twitter to crush North Carolina's decision.

"What a bad idea," he wrote.

Jones added that Brown's time as a head coach has "passed" and that Les Miles would've been a better choice. "Seriously. His time has passed. Les Miles would be a better hire than Mack," he tweeted.

Brown has been out of coaching for five years. He's spent those years doing analyst work for ESPN. It's unclear if North Carolina seriously considered any other candidates.
