He will become the defensive coordinator for the Tar Heels under Larry Fedora’s new coaching staff there. Yesterday, he served as interim head coach for the University of Illinois.

He coached the Illini in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco, California, winning 20-14 over UCLA. It was Koenning’s first head coaching win since 2002 when he finished 2-10 at Wyoming, his final season of a three-year (5-29) tenure there.

After new head coach Tim Beckmann took over, he offered Koenning an opportunity to stay at Illinois. But decided against it and rejected Beckman’s offer.

This season, Koenning’s defense was ranked seventh overall in the country. And his pass defense was fourth in the country.

This will be his first coaching position in North Carolina, but he’s not stranger to the Carolinas. He served as Clemson defensive coordinator from 2005-2008. Clemson is located in South Carolina.
