In his seven seasons leading the Tar Heels, Fedora produced a 45-43 record.
It looks like Mack Brown is headed back to North Carolina. Fedora had a 45-43 mark across seven seasons with the Tar Heels, a tenure that was highlighted by an 11-win season and ACC Coastal championship in 2015 and the rewriting of almost every offensive record in program history. Brown was originally hired at UNC in 1988 and led the Tar Heels to three 10-win seasons and three bowl victories before being hired away by Texas in 1998.
On Tuesday, the UNC Board of Trustees met in closed session for less than 30 minutes before the announcement of Brown's hire was made. Brown, 67, is two years older than new Kansas coach Les Miles but nonetheless going to be tasked with the same kind of challenge. But after just five wins in the last two seasons, Cunningham moved quickly to "take the football program in a new direction".
South Carolina's 2019 season-opening opponent didn't wait long to replace its fired head coach.
Brown came to UNC after three seasons (11-21) at Tulane and with a 6-5 season as the head coach at Appalachian State on his resume. According to IC, he's now in the process of assembling a staff.
He left North Carolina for the University of Texas, where he led the Longhorns to 15 bowl games in 16 years and the 2005 national championship. The Tar Heels won just five games combined over the last two seasons, finishing with 3-9 and 2-9 records in 2017 and 2018, respectively. At the end of the 2013 season, he announced his (forced) resignation from Texas and has not coached since. He's the second-winningest coach in both North Carolina and Texas history. He is set for induction in the College Football Hall of Fame next week. Brown was most recently a college football commentator for ESPN.
Brown's overall career record is 244-122.
