JOHN BUVKE 
ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH 
RECRUITING COORDINATOR 
DEFENSIVE LINE 




John Blake enters his first season on the North Carolina 
staff Blake, who spent the last three seasons at Nebraska, 
serves as the Tar Heels' associate head coach, recruiting co- 
ordinator and defensive line coach. 

Head coach Butch Davis and Blake previously worked to- 
gether as members of Jimmy Johnson's staff with the Dallas 
Cowboys. Blake joined the Dallas staff as defensive line coach after Davis was promoted 
to defensive coordinator In 1 993. That year, Dallas ranked eighth in the league in total 
defense and beat Buffalo, 30-1 3, in Super Bowl XXVII. After Davis left to become the 
head coach at Miami in 1 995, Bloke remained in Dallas and won another Super Bowl 
title under head coach Barry Switzer. 

Many observers consider Blake to be the nation's top recruiter Nebraska's 2005 class 
was considered by most recruiting analysts to be one of the top five in the country. His 
role in helping bring some of the country's most talented players to Lincoln led to Blake's 
inclusion as a finalist for National Recruiter of the Year by Rivals.com He also was re- 
sponsible for recruiting the majority of starters on Oklahoma's 2000 national champi- 
onship team. 

Bloke was hired as Nebraska's defensive line coach in 2004, and the Huskers ranked 
second in the Big 1 2 and 1 1th nationally in rushing defense that season. Nebraska al- 
lowed just 104.0 yards rushing per game, including a league-low 2.9 yards per attempt. 
In 2005, Nebraska's defense ranked in the top 30 nationally in all four major defensive 
categories, including being the top-ranked unit in the country for sacks and tackles for 
loss. In 2006, Nebraska was 9-4 during the regular season and accepted on invitation to 
play Auburn in the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 1 , 2007. Blake also coached in the Huskers' 32- 
28 win over Michigan in the 2005 Alamo Bowl. 

Prior to his stint at Nebraska, Blake served one season as Mississippi State's defensive 
line coach in 2003. He was the director of a professional developmental camp called "A 
Chance To Advance Football Camp" for four years before joining MSU. Among his clients 
were Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor, Atlanta Falcons linebacker Keith Brook- 
ing, New Orleans Saints defense end Darren Howard and Indianapolis Colts defensive 
end Dwight Freeney. 

A native of Rockford, 111., Blake played for Switzer at Oklahoma from 1 979-82 where 
he earned All-Big Eight honors at nose guard. He later returned to his alma mater to 
serve as head coach of the Sooners from 1 996-98. 

At Oklahoma, Blake began as a student assistant working with the defensive line in 
1 985 and earned a national championship ring that season. The Sooners lost just two 
games during his first tenure on the staff. 

Blake's first full-time assistant position was at Tulsa from 1 987-88, where he coached 
the tight ends and wide receivers. He returned to his alma mater in 1 989 as the Sooners' 
defensive line coach, and then served as Gary Gibbs' linebackers coach from 1 990 to 
1992. 

After Johnson hired Blake in Dallas, five players mode the Pro Bowl during his three 
seasons. Blake's defensive line was considered one of the best in the NFL during his 
tenure. Among others. Bloke tutored pro bowlers Charles Haley, Russell Maryland and 
Leon Lett. 

Blake earned his bachelor's degree in public relations and recreation from Oklahoma 
in 1986. He and his wife, Freda, hove one son, Jourdan.

A CAROLINA SCHOLARSHIP 

IS ABOUT MUCH MORE 
THAN WHAT HAPPENS ON THE FIELO 



That's where Tar Heel student-athletes are in the public eye, of 
course. That's when we see them wearing their uniform, when 
they are stamped as Tar Heels across the chest. 

Receiving a scholarship to Carolina means meeting a handful of 
new teammates— and a world full of new classmates. It means 
remembering the many victories, because part of coming to 
Carolina means being a winner. But it also means remembering 
the children they met during their holiday shopping project, 
the sign a fan made for them at one of their games, and the 
professor in that 8 a.m. class that made them want to get out of 
bed early every morning. 

These student-athletes are afforded this opportunity because 
of The Rams Club. Each year, donors from across the country- 
alumni, fans and supporters— provide scholarships that enable 
more than 450 deserving young men and women to be Tar 
Heels for a lifetime.
