North Carolina head coach Hubert Davis added former Tar Heels players Sean May, Brad Frederick and Jeff Lebo to his staff on Thursday. 

Davis was hired as North Carolina's head coach on April 5. He took over for Roy Williams, who retired after 33 seasons as head coach with the program. 

May has been an assistant on Williams's staff for the last six seasons. He was named the Most Outstanding Player in the 2005 NCAA tournament after the Tar Heels defeated Illinois to win the national title.

Lebo logged 107 starts in four seasons at North Carolina from 1985–89. He was the head coach at East Carolina before returning to Chapel Hill. Fredrick was a reserve for the Tar Heels from '96–99, and he's been with North Carolina for the last eight years. 

"I wanted a staff that went to North Carolina and played at North Carolina," Davis said in a statement. "I think you have a great opportunity to do this job well if you've experienced it as a player."

Next season will mark the first time when North Carolina's head coach and three primary assistants are all former players. Davis played four years with the Tar Heels from '88–92, averaging 21.4 points per game as a senior.
