If you haven't heard the story, there's a reason North Texas coach Dan McCarney wears sunglasses. McCarney, who turns 61 today, is blind in his right eye. He has had four surgeries in an attempt to restore vision to the eye, which is highly sensitive to light. But none of the procedures have worked and he has to put five different drops in the eye each day. McCarney's has revived the Mean Green program, leading it to a 9-4 record in 2013 that included a 36-14 victory over Nevada Las Vegas in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.
