Tar Heels hire Sylvia Crawley

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina has hired former Tar Heels player and coach Sylvia Crawley as an assistant coach.

Crawley was the top center on UNC's 1994 NCAA championship team and played professionally for more than a decade, both overseas and in the WNBA.

Crawley also spent two years as an assistant at UNC from 2000 to 2002 and later at Fordham before becoming head coach at Ohio from 2006 to 2008 and Boston College from 2008 to 2012.

Crawley replaces another former UNC playing great, Ivory Latta, who resigned in May after two seasons to focus on her professional playing career.
