North Carolina Football: Fabby Desir transfers out of UNC
August 6, 2012 by Leave a Comment
A couple of days ago, as reported by both Tar Heel Illustrated and Inside Carolina, senior line backer Fabby Desir decided to transfer out of the North Carolina football program and to finish his college career elsewhere. The young man, who came to Chapel Hill via Junior College, played in 10 games last season before getting hurt and amounted a total of 15 tackles. This season the 6’0″/225 lbs line backer was slated as the back up to Kevin Reddick in the team “two deep” depth chart. Over at GoHeels.com, the official site of UNC Athletics, there is no story about this, but that is probably cause the school does not engage in these sort of things. It is unsure why the senior line backer made this move. It might be the fact that with the new defense installed and the young line backers shaping up for head coach Larry Fedora and his staff Desir was feeling like he would not see much playing time. For now no one really knows, and the truth might never be told unless Fabby Desir, who went to Scranton (Pa.) High School, discloses the reason. In a year of changes this is definitely not what the North Carolina football team needs, but as the old saying goes “it is what it is”. And in the end, because it’s a new regime and a new scheme at Chapel Hill, maybe it’s best that the young man left now instead of being unhappy for the whole season. The last thing that a new head coach needs is locker room problems, and while I am not saying that would have happened with the senior, I am stating that now it won’t happen. As I do with all current and former Tar Heels let me wish all the best to Fabbi Desir as he seeks another program to finish out his college career at.
