Sources: Fedora to accept head coaching position at North Carolina

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Credible sources say University of Southern Mississippi head football coach Larry Fedora has accepted an offer to become the next head football coach at the University of North Carolina. 

WDAM confirmed North Carolina officially offered the job to Fedora earlier on Tuesday. However, WDAM spoke to one official with Southern Miss late on Tuesday, who says he could neither confirm nor deny those reports. In addition, neither North Carolina nor Southern Miss have officially released statements.

Sources also say, however, that an official announcement could be made early Wednesday. WDAM tried unsuccessfully to reach Southern Miss Athletics Director Richard Gianini for comment late Tuesday.

Fedora, 49, is in his fourth year with the golden eagles, and on Saturday led his team to a 2011 Conference USA championship; Fedora's first as head coach. His team defeated the sixth-ranked University of Houston 49-28, also giving Southern Miss it's eleventh win of the season, making this year's team the winningest in program history.

Southern Miss received an invite to play in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl on Dec. 24 against the University of Nevada.
