New coach Dré Bly, a former star cornerback, remembers his UNC ‘rude boy’ days (it’s a mindset)

When Dré Bly played at North Carolina in the late 1990’s, he helped make popular the phrase “rude boy,” the name once adopted by UNC’s defensive backs. Bly, who was hired to coach the defensive backs at UNC earlier this month, was a former All-American cornerback. And he helped the Tar Heels become one of the most feared defenses in the country under Mack Brown during Brown’s first stint at UNC.
