After meeting with Texas Longhorns head coach Tom Herman last week to discuss the possibility of joining his staff in Austin, former North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora is now officially coming aboard the Texas staff as an offensive analyst, sources tell Burnt Orange Nation. Orangebloods’ Anwar Richardson was the first to report the news.
Fedora was fired from North Carolina at the end of 2018 following back-to-back nine-loss seasons.
Though the last few years of his tenure were rough, Fedora was also responsible for the most successful period of football in Chapel Hill since the early Mack Brown years. In 2015, Fedora guided the Tar Heels to an 11-win season, coming a few plays short of beating Clemson in the ACC Championship with a potential playoff berth on the line.
Fedora also groomed a relatively unknown high school quarterback from Ohio, Mitch Trubisky, into a top-10 NFL Draft pick.
Prior to his stop in Chapel Hill, Fedora was the head coach at Southern Miss, leading the Golden Eagles to multiple winning seasons including a 12-win campaign in 2011.
Fedora has also worked as an offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State, Florida, Air Force and Middle Tennessee. His coaching career began at Garland High in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
A native of College Station, Fedora’s brother is currently the head coach at A&M Consolidated High in College Station.
