4/18/18 – Larry Fedora, Head Football Coach, UNC

The guest speaker for our upcoming meeting will be Larry Fedora, Head Football Coach at the University of North Carolina. Fedora will be entering his 6th season at UNC. Fedora is UNC’s 34th full-time head coach. He promised to implement an aggressive, attacking philosophy on both sides of the ball, with the same wide-open spread offense he used at Southern Miss and a blitz-heavy defense. His philosophy is based on a a quote from George S. Patton—”Instead of waiting to see what might develop, attack constantly, vigorously and viciously. Never let up, never stop, always attack.” He has vowed that Tar Heel football would be known for “playing smart, playing fast, and playing physical. Over the last five seasons, the Tar Heels have set records in bunches, electrified fans with their special teams, play, produced numerous professional prospects and finished first in the Coastal Division on two occasions.

Fedora, who already ranks fifth all-time at UNC with 40 victories, signed a new contract extension in May to keep him in Chapel Hill through the 2022 season.

“I enjoy coaching at the University of North Carolina and I appreciate the trust Chancellor Folt and Bubba Cunningham have shown in the leadership of our program,” Fedora said. “Our staff and players have worked diligently over the last five years to build a program that encompasses all aspects of the student-athlete experience, while simultaneously achieving success on the field.”

Carolina has won 19 games in the last two years, including 13 of 16 ACC regular season contests. The 19 wins are the most in back-to-back seasons since winning 21 in 1996 (10) and 1997 (11). Fedora’s .813 winning percentage in ACC games (13-3) over the past two seasons ranks in the top six nationally among Power 5 schools.
