JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) -

East Tennessee State University officially announced that Carl Torbush will lead the Buccaneers' football program as the head football coach.

Former University of North Carolina head coach Carl Torbush has been tasked with the role of preparing the Buccaneers for 2015 kickoff, according to ETSU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Richard Sander.

Sander added the "Buccaneers needed the right person to start building the program's foundation and prepare for the start of competitive play".

Torbush exclaimed in the press conference Friday afternoon, I'm thrilled football is coming back to East Tennessee State.

Torbush's career includes head coaching stops at North Carolina and Louisiana Tech.

The Bucs had a football team for more than 80 seasons before the program was disbanded in 2003.
