North Carolina junior cornerback Mywan Jackson will not return to the program and sophomore defensive tackle Brandon Willis will transfer, the school announced on Friday.

“Mywan is working through some personal issues right now with his family and he felt it was in his best interest to stay in Florida until he decides where to continue his education,” interim coach Everett Withers said in a prepared statement. “He indicated he would like to attend a school closer to his home and we support his decision. I wish him nothing but the best.”

Jackson played in 18 games during his two seasons in Chapel Hill and made five starts in 2010. He had 20 tackles and broke up three passes a year ago.

Willis seems to have commitment issues -- UNC, UCLA, UNC, ?? ...

He attended classes at UNC in the 2010 spring semester and two sessions of summer school. He then transferred to UCLA two weeks into Carolina's fall training camp on Aug. 19. He sat out the 2010 season at UCLA due to NCAA transfer rules. He then transferred back to Carolina this May and attended the second session of summer school in June.

Junior running back Hunter Furr has also announced his plans to transfer.

Withers also announced Friday he has awarded scholarships for the 2011 season to fullback Curtis Byrd, deep-snapper Mark House and holder Trase Jones.

North Carolina long-snapper Trevor Stuart will miss the rest of the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee in the first half of the Tar Heels' 31-17 win over East Carolina.

Stuart became the long-snapper during the middle of the 2008 season. Mark House, a walk-on from Wilmington, N.C, came in for Stuart in the ECU game. House was Carolina’s long-snapper for six games in 2008 before fracturing a finger.

ESPN's Bruce Feldman is reporting that UNC will hire Southern Miss assistant Art Kaufman to coach the special teams or possibly the linebackers. Kaufman was the defensive line coach and special-teams coordinator for the Golden Eagles. He has 25 seasons of collegiate coaching experience.

Like UNC coach Butch Davis, Kaufman is also an Arkansas graduate. That leaves one position Davis still needs to fill. The Tar Heels are expected to hire South Florida secondary coach Troy Douglas.

As for the three players who were dismissed from the team -- deep-snapper Mark House, linebacker/defensive end Kenny Harris and receiver Anthony Parker-Boyd -- they weren't expected to be on the two-deep roster this spring. Only Parker-Boyd saw a live snap last season.
