Charlotte 49ers head coach Alan Major has returned from his medical leave of absence, according to a press release.

Major, who is entering his fifth season behind the bench in Charlotte, underwent a number of surgeries this past summer.

“I’m very thankful to God to be back with the team,” Major said. “I want to thank my family, our players and coaches, Athletic Director Judy Rose, Chancellor Phil Dubois and the UNC Charlotte administration."

Under Major's watch over the past two seasons, the 49ers have averaged 19 wins.
