Heels promote Pittman to associate head coach

North Carolina has promoted offensive line coach Sam Pittman to associate head coach, the school announced today.

Pittman will continue coaching offensive linemen, a duty he has handled in the last four years under head coach Butch Davis. Pittman came to the Tar Heels as part of Davis' original coaching staff in 2007.

“Sam has done a terrific job building our offensive line over the last four seasons,” Davis said in a statement.  “One of Sam’s strengths is his ability to build relationships with people and motivate them to perform at the highest level. Sam also has been one of our top recruiters. He is man of great integrity and is a tremendous representative for the University of North Carolina.”

ESPN.com named Pittman one of the nation's top 25 recruiters earlier this year. In the past two years, Pittman has signed the nation's No. 2 tackle with James Hurst in 2010 and Kiaro Holts in 2011.

UNC has no money to pay its teachers but can pay millions to coaches.
Insane.

Associate Head Coach was John Blake's former title. In other words, Butch will have no idea what Pittman is doing.

Looks like Pittman may get two promotions in one week!
