Larry Fedora and the North Carolina Tar Heels have reportedly reached an agreement for the current Southern Miss Golden Eagles head coach to take the same position with the Tar Heels. Fedora has been linked with the job several times in the past few days, but it seems that a deal is now all but official.
Fedora reached an agreement in principle with the Tar Heels to be next head coach, according to a tweet from the always excellent Bruce Feldman. Feldman reports that his source told him the deal was agreed to early Wednesday morning, meaning an announcement could be on its way shortly.
The Tar Heels job isn't an exceptional one, but as SB Nation's Bill Connelly notes, it's probably a step up from the head job at Southern Miss.

Fedora, who led Southern Miss to an 11-2 record this season, apparently was chosen over Gus Malzahn, Everett Withers and possibly Skip Holtz -- though the latter denied those rumors.
