Disgraced former Tar Heel head coach Butch Davis gave university chancellor Holden Thorp and AD Dick Baddour one final parting gift — a scholarship offer to his son, Drew, an unranked, dual-threat quarterback at East Chapel Hill High School.
Charlotte Observer blogger Ken Tysiac spoke with Thorp, who found out on the Interwebs that Drew had an offer from the Tar Heels, and was, shall we say, none too happy:
"Drew is a good kid and I feel bad for him in all this," Thorp said, "and for all I know, we would love to have him on the football team. But with everything going on, it would be good for the athletic director and the coach to talk about that and probably for all three of us to talk."
Clearly, it would have been good for Davis, Thorp and Baddour to talk about a lot of things, but I'm going to chalk this one up to Davis hoping Thorp would take it easy on his son...and Drew never seeing the field. Sorry, kid.
