Fedora introduced as football coach at UNC

AP Sports Writer

CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) — Larry Fedora says he’s excited to help North Carolina’s football program move forward.

Fedora was introduced as the Tar Heels’ coach Friday, a few hours after the terms of his seven-year contract were approved by the school’s board of trustees.

With men’s basketball coach Roy Williams among the hundreds attending his introductory news conference, Fedora proclaimed it “the first day of a new era of UNC football” and told fans they’d “better buckle your seat belts and you better hold on, because it’s going to be a wild ride.”

The former Southern Mississippi coach received a deal worth more than $1.7 million annually. It includes several bonuses, including for winning a division or conference championship, reaching a BCS game and high graduation rates.
