"It simply is time to take our football program in a new direction". Marquise Williams and Mitch Trubisky played QB for North Carolina's last two bowl teams.

Less than 24 hours after his team's overtime loss to NC State, Larry Fedora has been fired by North Carolina.

North Carolina announced on Sunday morning that head coach Larry Fedora has been fired after finishing up a awful 2-9 record including 1-7 in the ACC. UNC peaked under his watch in 2015 when the Tar Heels went 11-3 and got to as high as No. 8 in the AP poll.

Attorney Gordon Kromberg told Brinkema, suggesting that details of such matters are best addressed in a judge's private chambers. Barry Pollack, a USA lawyer representing Mr Assange, told the BBC he is unaware of the nature of such a criminal complaint.


There has been talk all season long, especially after UNC opened with an ugly loss at Cal, that Fedora would be fired at the end of the season.

Fedora led the Tar Heels to the ACC championship game in 2015, but the program slipped over the last three seasons.

Fedora's current contract was set to run through 2022, and he has a buyout of just over $12 million (which is subject to mitigation should he find another coaching job).

Fedora arrived in Chapel Hill before the 2012 season to take over a program at the end of an NCAA investigation into improper benefits and academic misconduct.

The Tar Heels finished the 2018 season with a 2-9 record. But the slide began in November 2016, when a 7-2 UNC team ranked 15th nationally and led by eventual No. 2 overall National Football League draft pick Mitch Trubisky lost at struggling Duke. N.C. State appeared to have an advantage in numbers at first, but then the Tar Heels' bench joined in too. The team's only wins this season came against Pittsburgh on September 22 and Western Carolina on November 17. He was 34-19 in four seasons at the school and his final team at Southern Miss went 12-2.

"Despite injuries, despite setbacks and hardships, Larry never made excuses".
