Larry Fedora, UNC in contract talks

-

The University of North Carolina and head football coach Larry Fedora have begun negotiations for a new contract, according to Greg Barnes of Inside Carolina.

“They are in discussions,” the source told InsideCarolina.com on Wednesday. “They want it to be a workable deal. They want him here for the long term.”

UNC AD Bubba Cunningham added that the plan was the raise the salaries of both Fedora and his staff.

“I do think that we lag the market in a lot of our salaries and we’re going to continue to try to compensate people to get them to stay,” Cunningham said.

Fedora is currently in the fourth year of a seven-year deal and earns $1.73 million in base salary per year before “retention bonuses”, easily one of the lowest in the ACC, but his success with the Tar Heels this season makes him more than worthy of an extension. UNC is 11-1 (8-0 ACC) this year and has a date with Clemson in the ACC Championship Game on in Charlotte on Saturday, and the team has only gotten better under his watch.

Fedora came to Chapel Hill from Southern Miss in 2012 to a program that was mired in an academic scandal, and has gone 32-18 (21-11 ACC) in four seasons. Needless to say, though this season was quite a big jump forward, Fedora has definitely earned his raise.
