Report: Fedora To UNC

Multiple media outlets, including ESPN, have reported Southern Miss head football coach Larry Fedora has been offered the job at UNC and is likely to accept it.

Fedora led Southern Miss to an upset of previously-undefeated Houston in the Conference USA championship game over the weekend. The Golden Eagles finished the season 11-2 and will play Nevada in the Hawaii Bowl.

Fedora is 33-19 at Southern Miss, his first head coaching job after assistant coaching jobs at Florida and Oklahoma State.

    Sounds like there is a BUNCH of upset EZU after that ugly 48-28 Loss to Southern Miss. Well if you lost that BAD with the Coach you have and you are Bad Mouthing Fedora then what does that say about YOUR Coach. At least his first job when he arrives will NOT be a Weight Loss Surgery!!! Good Luck Losers(EZU).

      You do realize that Fedora was 2-2 against ECU and 1-3 against UAB. If Fedora does have success at UNC, he will jump at the first SEC or Big 12 (whatever the number is now) job opening offered.

    Bad Hire.This guy has no class whatsoever.His S.Miss teams played the dirtiest football i have ever seen. Guy looks like a thug & His player seem to play like thugs. UNC will curse the day they hired him. With all the money UNC Has ,You would think UNC could gget a really big name coach. Time will prove i am right!!!

    TOB says next! LOl, Guess Boise St didn't have any interest either, Texas A&M didn't want this guy either, well Holes, your his last choice. Looks like the wolfpack will still be winning against the holes and the holes will be battling Duke for last place in the Coastal Division for a few more years.

    Funny how a mediocre, under the radar coach is suddenly the greatest coach in the world because he is going to unc. Heck, you could put a little light blue on a turd and the heel fans would swear it was a rose!

    I think they would have been just as well off keeping Withers.

      Bad Hire. Every since he has been at S.Mississippi they have played dirty football like late hits,facemasks,just rough dirty football. Only reason he did so well was because he had a really good Q-Back in Austin Davis. He will not take carolina to next level. I Feel sorry fot Withers.Nice man,Good coach & Probably out of a job. I Cannot emagine anyone working with Fedora. Bsd AD & Coach Hire.

          UNC will curse the day they hired Fedora. He just does not fit the mold of a UNC Coach. He is sorta rough around the edge.Not a very classy guy at all.

    What a "SHOCKER". First UNC goes to Cup cake Div 1-A Conference USA to get a new AD and now a coach!!! I bet the Walmart Tarholes are scratching their greasy heads trying to figure this one out. What happended to the big name coach the "Holes" faitful think they are entitled to? Could it be that Fedora is the best UNC can get? Watch out Chapel Hill Police, the thugs are coming.If you don't think so, check Southern Miss over the last several years and see how many of thier players have been shot, stabbed,dismissed from the team and gone to jail. You get what you deserve.

    When I saw this headline with the word "Fedora", I actually wondered how Indiana Jones' hat could have anything to do with UNC.

    He will be a good one. Great recruiter, one of the best offensive minds in the game today. If he doesnt go to UNC he will go somewhere big.
