Tar Heels turn to Chizik to improve struggling defense

(AP) -- North Carolina is hoping former Auburn head coach Gene Chizik can turn around its struggling defense.

The Tar Heels have hired Chizik as defensive coordinator after allowing the most points and yards in their history last year.

Chizik accepted an offer about 2 1/2 weeks ago, though the school didn't officially announce the hiring until Monday once it was finalized. Team spokesman Kevin Best said the three-year deal will pay an average of $691,000 annually, including a base salary of $250,000 plus additional outside compensation.
