Take a tour of UNC's brand-new football facilities

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WTVD) -- When Mack Brown left UNC in the late 90s, time seemed to standstill for Carolina's football facilities. Once back in charge, a $5 million upgrade began immediately.

First stop on the Brown led media tour, a lounge built for fun and relaxation in mind, which includes sleeping pods and brand-new video games.

The remodeled locker room has what the players wanted: a phone charging station.

Each locker has an cooling system to dry equipment so no more wet shoulder pads and helmets.

The final piece of the puzzle is the new synthetic turf, which has been installed at Kenan stadium.

Five NFL teams have the same turf which is mostly maintenance free.

If hiring Mack was going back to the future, the new football digs are the start of part two.
