As the Tarheels start to prepare for the upcoming football season the team got to see their new facilities that feature a new weight room and locker room. The new lockers feature three fans in each to dry helmets, shoulder pads and knee braces. There are a variety of storage areas that feature USB ports to power the players devices within each locker. The new weight room will have over twenty custom-designed lifting racks that will feature the UNC logo along side the Jumpman logo.
"The players need to know they're important, they need to know that there's change coming and especially since the past two years haven't been what they've wanted. Number one, it tells them that we're going to do what we told them we're going to do and number two, it shows the importance from the administration." - Head Coach Mack Brown
