Class of 2014 five-star running back Elijah Hood already flipped once this recruiting cycle, so it's not surprising that North Carolina fans got a little nervous about the crown jewel of their recruiting class when offensive coordinator Blake Anderson took the head coaching job at Arkansas State earlier this month.
But the one-time Notre Dame commit has a message for Tar Heels fans - there's nothing to worry about, whoever Anderson's replacement may be.
"I think I can do whatever they tell me to do," he said. "If they want to change the offense I'll be good with it, if they want to keep it I'll be good with it. I'm just happy to be a Tar Heel."

Hood admitted that he will miss Anderson, but that he doesn't expect the culture of the program to change much.
"He was a good guy to be a round and he was a lot of fun," Hood said. "But the whole staff is. They have a good energy. I'll miss him a good bit but I know he's going to do good things at Arkansas State so good luck to him and everything he's doing."
He added that the fact other schools come looking to UNC to find coaches shows that they must be doing something right in Chapel Hill.
"He did a good enough job to earn that job offer," Hood said. "He's always wanted to be a head coach and he earned it so he's offer to bigger things for him personally. It just shows that they have good coaches there."
