The UNC football program will be joining the Michigan Wolverines in wearing the Jordan Brand this season, and the players received a special gift to celebrate the occasion.
On Wednesday night, head coach Larry Fedora informed the team that they would be receiving some Jordan Retro 11’s.
Of course, the players went crazy over the news.

And in case you were wondering, yes, the sneakers are very, very nice.

Free Jordans are always a good thing, and it proves to be one of the perks of being one of the few schools to rock the Jordan Brand on the gridiron.
