UNC grad assistant football coach quits after DWI charge
Posted March 30, 2015
Twelve hours after police found him slumped asleep in his running car, Gerald McRath, a graduate assistant football coach on Larry Fedora's staff at the University of North Carolina, quit his job and issued an apology.
"I apologize for my actions and for bringing negative publicity and attention to the University of North Carolina and the football program," McRath said in a statement. "I have decided to resign my position as a graduate assistant coach at UNC and move forward with my career.”
McRath, 28, was arrested early Monday on a charge of driving while impaired, paid a $1,500 bond and was released.
McRath, who played for Fedora in college while at the University of Southern Mississippi, played four seasons with the Tennessee Titans and joined the Tar Heel staff in 2015.
