He suffered a stroke last year, and now recently was in the hospital for another surgery.
North Texas said that McCarney had successful surgery last Friday, and is OK. A source said this procedure has nothing to do with the stroke and that McCarney, 59, is fine and back to work. McCarney does not want to be specific about the procedure.
McCarney not being able to work would be a hard blow for a program that recently opened a new stadium, and was enjoying a little bit of momentum after two seasons with the former Iowa State head coach running things in Denton.
He inherited a team that wasn't exactly loaded, and is 9-15 in his two seasons at UNT. The Mean Green were 4-4 in the Sun Belt in his first season, and 3-5 last year.
This has the makings to be a winning season for UNT. God knows McCarney could use it.
