Following up on initial rumors that Southern Miss coach Larry Fedora would take the job at North Carolina, two sources have confirmed to our own John Taylor that Fedora has been offered and has accepted the job at UNC. An official announcement is expected for later today.
InsideCarolina.com has also confirmed the offer.
Fedora is coming off an 11-2 season with USM and a stunning upset over Houston in the Conference USA championship game. Fedora is 33-19 in four years at USM.
Fedora would be replacing interim UNC coach Everett Withers, who took over after Butch Davis was fired over the summer in the midst of the NCAA’s investigation into the football program.
Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Mahlzahn was also connected to the UNC job.
