WATCH: Tomon Fox talks position change, offseason work

Fox excited about the shift to linebacker

Tomon Fox will still be chasing quarterbacks next season, but he'll be doing it from a variety of spots.

Now listed as a linebacker on the Carolina roster, Fox won't be putting his hand in the dirt as a defensive end anymore.

Instead, he'll be working from a standing spot as the Tar Heels switch to a 3-4 defense under new defensive coordinator Jay Bateman.
