CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) _ North Carolina defensive backs coach Jim Fleming has resigned from the team.
The Tar Heels lost to Duke 30-22 Saturday to wrap up their season with a 2-10 record, 1-7 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. They allowed 278.2 passing yards per game, third-worst in the ACC.
``Jim and I discussed his status with the football program on Sunday and came to the mutual understanding that it was time for a change,'' coach John Bunting said Monday in a release.
Fleming was the head coach at Sacred Heart for two years before coaching at North Carolina for two seasons.
