UNC head coach Mack Brown and UM head coach Manny Diaz have a bit of a history and it appeared to be on display after their game.
Back in 2013, while he was the head coach of Texas, Brown fired Diaz who was an assistant coach on the team.
After UNC beat Miami on Saturday, the two coaches exchanged an extremely awkward handshake at midfield. While Brown seemed to enjoy himself and laughed it up, Diaz looked like he wanted no part in talking to his former boss.
Somebody send the video I gotta see this! Mack and Diaz coached together at Texas. Mack was my head coach Diaz was my D Coordinator
