Michigan was the first. North Carolina will now be the second. Michael Jordan’s alma mater will join the aforementioned Wolverines from Ann Arbor as the only teams in D-1 collegiate athletics to wear the Jumpman on the football field. Jordan made an appearance in Chapel Hill over the weekend for Duke-UNC and did so in a Carolina Football tee with a Jumpman front and center.
“I’m happy to extend the Jordan Brand relationship not only for the game of basketball but for the game of football. I am extremely proud in terms of what Coach Fedora has done for the football team and I think bigger and better things are about to happen,” – Michael Jordan
The new look for the UNC football program will be debuted on-field September 2nd. And yes….argyle will be present.
