CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – One-time seemingly permanently exiled defensive lineman Terry Hunter may still have another life remaining with the North Carolina football program. On Monday, UNC head coach John Bunting left the door open for his possible return to the team.

“I said he was done here, because he is done here,” Bunting said. “I’m not going to say that he couldn’t earn his way back by doing some really great things. The greatest pleasure you have in coaching college football is seeing someone turn it around. That’s all I need to say. I have several examples on this team already.”

According to a police report filed on Feb. 1, Hunter was cited for driving with a revoked license and misdemeanor possession of marijuana after being stopped for a vehicle equipment violation on Stadium Drive on campus.

"Terry Hunter has done something very, very stupid, and as much as we've reached out to try to help him, as much as I've hoped for him to be part of this team, he may have played his last game," Bunting said shortly after the incident.

Bunting went on to say at that time that Hunter was “suspended immediately and indefinitely.”

Hunter, who is not listed in the Tar Heels 2005 media guide, recorded nine tackles last season, including one for a four-yard loss.
