UNC HC Mack Brown Has Knee Replacement Surgery Done by Ex-Player

Mack Brown is currently in his second stint as head coach at North Carolina, but his first go at the job has paid off in a way that has nothing to do with football.

Per, a spokesman for the Tar Heels football team announced one of Mack's former players, Dr. Michael Bolognesi, performed knee replacement surgery for the legendary coach.

Brown issued a statement on Bolognesi repairing his knee Monday:

"First off, how cool is it that one of our former players replaced my knee yesterday. We talk about building young men so they can be productive husbands, fathers and citizens.
