UNC adds Frasor, Manuel to hoops staff
By Robbi Pickeral
Bobby Frasor and Jackie Manuel -- guards on North Carolina's 2009 and 2005 national title teams, respectively -- are now on the basketball staff, the school announced Friday.
Frasor will serve as assistant video coordinator; Manuel is the new assistant strength and conditioning coordinator. Both are six-month appointments that run through May 15, 2012.
“These are two outstanding young men who have decided to end their competitive playing careers and are looking to get into basketball from a non-playing perspective,” coach Roy Williams said in a prepared statement. “I think this will be a great opportunity for them to focus on what it takes to run a program. They’ll set good examples for our current players because they know what it takes to win at a high level.”
