North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham says the school has agreed to terms on a seven-year contract with coach Larry Fedora.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Cunningham says the deal would run through the 2022 season. Cunningham says financial terms will be released once the school’s trustees grant final approval, though it was unclear exactly when that would happen.
The agreement, first reported by ESPN, comes shortly before the No. 8 Tar Heels were to face No. 1 Clemson in Saturday’s Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. UNC won 11 regular-season games and completed its first 8-0 run through ACC play under Fedora, now in his fourth season.
Fedora had three years left on his original contract after arriving here from Southern Mississippi in December 2011.
