Big thanks to Matt Doherty for stopping by practice today and speaking some words of encouragement to the guys. pic.twitter.com/keUIUCyrEB

Yes, the same Matt Doherty who coached the North Carolina Tar Heels for three seasons before they brought in Roy Williams (later the coach at FAU and SMU). These days, he’s a college scout for the Pacers, but he owns a home in the Charlotte area (his wife, Kelly, is from Concord).
Might he be taking a look at some Niners and taking notes for draft-time? (Probably not, but who knows if a late round pick is in the making?)
