Quick Sun Belt call notes

I’m not a big fan of the unpleasant question time of the year, which is back after a year’s hiatus at UNT.

So here are the two news tidbits from today’s Sun Belt call, neither of which is surprising:

– Linebacker Mike Stojkovic is gone for good.

– Wide receiver Chaz Sampson is transferring out.

Stojkovic was a pretty good player his first season at UNT, but then ran into legal problems and off-the-field issues. UNT let him back on the roster for a while, but then parted ways with him again. It was more of a house keeping question than anything, but he won’t be back.

Sampson never worked out at UNT. He said publically a while back that he is headed to Alcorn State. He was a high profile recruit who never worked out. That really hurt during a time when UNT has lacked playmaking ability.

I asked McCarney if he anticipated any changes in his staff and didn’t get a bite. Didn’t expect one. McCarney will meet with his coaches as they head out the door to recruit.

UNT will have 20 spots to give after bringing give transfers/grayshirt players at the semester break.
