BREAKING: Baylor to hire former UNC HC Larry Fedora as offensive coordinator

Baylor head coach Dave Aranda is in the process of hiring former University of North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora as his offensive coordinator, SicEm365 has learned from multiple sources. Pete Thamel was the first to make the report public. 

Baylor has not confirmed the report at this time.

The news comes a day after Baylor officially announced Jorge Munoz of LSU as the passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach. 

Fedora was the head coach of the Tar Heels for seven seasons from 2012-2018 and compiled an overall record of 45-43 including an even 28-28 in league play. From 2012-2016 Fedora led UNC to a 40-25 record, but won only five games in his final two seasons there in 2017 and 2018.

Fedora spent the 2019 season as an analyst for the University of Texas while receiving his buyout from UNC.

Prior to North Carolina, Fedora spent four seasons as the head coach at Southern Miss where he amassed a 34-19 overall record and a 20-12 record in Conference USA from 2008-2011.  From 2005-2007 Fedora was the offensive coordinator for Oklahoma State under Mike Gundy and from 2002-2004 he spent time on staff at Florida, including as the offensive coordinator in 2004.

Fedora won the C-USA Championship in 2011 with Southern Miss and reached the ACC Championship game in 2015 with UNC.

Known for his powerful offenses, Fedora’s teams averaged north of 30 points in nine of his 11 seasons as a head coach. As an offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State, the Cowboys improved from 20.2 points in his first season to 35.2 and 34.6 points in years two and three.

Fedora spent six seasons as an assistant coach at Baylor from 1991-1996, including time coaching the receivers, tight ends and running backs. Fedora spent two years under head coach Grant Teaff from 1991-1992.
