RB Chandler shifting to North Carolina


Running back Ty Chandler is transferri­ng to North Carolina for his final season of eligibilit­y after graduating from Tennessee.

North Carolina announced Chandler’s decision Tuesday.

The Tar Heels just lost a pair of 1,000-yard rushers in Javonte Williams and Michael Carter. Chandler ranked fifth all-time at Tennessee with 3,291 all-purpose yards in 46 games. He also averaged 4.9 yards per carry with 2,046 yards rushing.

♦ Running back Markese Stepp has transferre­d from Southern California to Nebraska, strengthen­ing an area of need for the Cornhusker­s following the departures of Dedrick Mills andWan’Dale Robinson. The 6-foot 235-pounder appeared in five of the Trojans’ six games and was the team’s third-leading rusher with 45 carries for 165 yards and three touchdowns.

♦ Tyson Summers is out as defensive coordinato­r at Colorado after two seasons. Summers was hired under former Buffaloes coach Mel Tucker in December 2018, and was one of the staff members retained by current Colorado coach Karl Dorrell. The Buffaloes allowed 420.3 yards per game and 31.7 points last season as they finished 4-2. The team lost to Texas 55-23 in the Alamo Bowl.
