CFB team has wildest locker room celebration after becoming bowl eligible
Charlotte once had a football team, but shut it down after the 1948 season. It started back up again in 2013, playing 2 years at the FCS level.
Only since 2016 have the 49ers been able to qualify for a bowl game, and on Saturday, they finally accomplished a 6-win season under coach Will Healy.
After beating Marshall, the celebration in the Charlotte locker room got wild. As you can see below, Healy was shirtless and wearing the mascot head:

That just looks like fun, and Healy’s players clearly have a lot of respect for him. He seems like an exciting guy.
Charlotte still has one game to go (against Old Dominion) before bowl season. Now, we’ll see where they end up playing this postseason and whether more celebrations are in Healy’s future.
