Larry Fedora To Be Named North Carolina Head Coach, According To Reports

Larry Fedora is expected to accept the head coaching job at North Carolina, according to multiple reports, including CBSSports.com, which lists a host of confirmations.

Fedora is the head coach at Southern Miss, which he led to an 11-2 campaign this season, capped by a surprise win in the Conference USA championship game against previously undefeated Houston.

No official announcement has been made. Gatorsports.com's Pat Dooley tweeted, "My source tells me Larry Fedora is new North Carolina coach. That's great for him. Good fit as well." But followed up that report by saying it wasn't a done deal:

I know this -- as of this morning, Fedora did not have an offer from NC. He also interviewed at A&M. He's from College Station. So we'll see. Hmm, sounds like Fedora to NC not a done deal. They want him, but will A&M offer? His dad is still a barber in College Station.

Ah, the old "Dad is still a barber" hang-up. Classic.
