John Blake, North Carolinaâ€™s associate head football coach, has resigned effective Sunday amid NCAA investigations into the football program. Blake was in his fourth season as a member of the Tar Heel coaching staff.
â€œWhile I have enjoyed my tenure at the University of North Carolina, it has become apparent to me over the course of the past few weeks that my presence has become a distraction to my family and to this great University, too,” Blake said. “Consequently, I have determined that it is in the best interests of my family, the University community at large, and the Football Program for me to step down from my position as associate head football coach effective today, September 5, 2010.”
The NCAA probe into the UNC football program turned to associate head coach John Blake and his relationship with agent Gary Wichard. Wichard is an NFL agent and longtime acquaintance of Blake’s based in California.
Wichard’s clients include former North Carolina defensive tackle Kentwan Balmer, a San Francisco 49ers first-round pick in 2008 who was a teammate for one season with Marvin Austin and was also coached by Blake.
