The North Carolina Tar Heels need to move on from head football coach Larry Fedora. We don’t like to call for anybody’s job, but this decision will be made from the school sooner or later.
In the past two seasons, he only has four wins. Yes, that’s correct, FOUR (4) wins. Over that same time frame, he has 12 losses.
He also had to deal with a scandal this season. At least 13 players were suspended at least one game for selling team-issued Jordans.
Yet, despite having a scandal in the program, he hasn’t done a good job of getting his players focused. The past two losses are evident in that.
Fedora is the 50th-highest paid coach in college football. The 56-year-old makes $2.8 million this season. There may be a buyout, but we are confident the Tar Heels can handle it.
He has been the team’s head coach since the 2012 season. Yet, he has not had a winning season with the team since the 2016 season when the team went 8-5.
The team went 3-9 last season. That was the worst season of his entire head coaching career, as his previous worst was 6-7 in 2014.
The three wins were the fewest since a 3-9 record under former head coach John Bunting in 2006. He was fired following the season.
That season, the Tar Heels defeated Furman on September 16th at Kenan Memorial Stadium in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, winning 45-42. They then ended the season on a two-game win streak, as they first defeated the North Carolina State Wolfpack at Kenan Memorial Stadium, winning 23-9.
They also defeated the Duke Blue Devils at Wallace Wade Stadium, 45-44.
This season, the Tar Heels are averaging just 21 points per game. However, they are giving up 36.75 points per game.
Through four games of the season, the loss on Thursday night to No. 16 Miami (Florida) Hurricanes is their worst loss of the season. They lost 47-10 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
They only had one close loss, which was a 24-17 loss to the Cal Bears in the season-opener. The following week, they lost 41-19 to the East Carolina Pirates. The win over UNC is the Pirates lone win of the season.
North Carolina averaged 26 points per game last season. However, they were giving up 31.2 points per game.
Their worst loss of the season came in a 59-7 loss to No. 14 Virginia Tech at Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Virginia.
Barring a turnaround that we’re not seeing, Fedora’s days are numbered. He will likely be the first or one of the first head coaches to be fired in-season.
It was believed that he would need to win at least five wins this season to save his job. The way this season is going, he’s going to have another 3-9 season, or worse, if he is not fired during the season.
