North Carolina head coach has agreed to a seven-year extension with the university, according to a report from ESPN.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but there’s no doubt that Fedora has earned some job security. He is 32-18 (21-11 ACC) in four years in Chapel Hill and the Tar Heels went 11-1 (8-0 ACC) under his watch. In just a few hours, the team will play Clemson in the ACC Championship Game. Some speculate that with a win over the No. 1 Tigers, No. 10 UNC could somehow jump into the playoff, and Fedora commented on that himself.
“If we beat the No. 1 team in the country — and Clemson is the No. 1 in the country and a consensus No. 1, and they’ve stayed No. 1 for a long time — if that happens, then I believe our team is deserving,” Fedora said.
Either way, one thing is certain. After a great 2015, Fedora has won the right to stick around Chapel Hill for a good long time.
