The UNC Board of Trustees met for about an hour on Thursday to discuss the terms of new Tar Heel football coach Larry Fedora's contract. This is the first of two BOT meetings. The second will take place tomorrow at which point the trustees will officially approve the contract and Fedora's hire will be made official. The UNC system Board of Governors, which also must approve the contract, will meet today at 3 PM.
UNC has said there will be a 1 PM press conference on Friday to introduce Fedora as the Tar Heels' next head football coach.
Interim head coach Everett Withers and the current staff will remain in place through the Independence Bowl on December 26th. There is still no word on whether Fedora will coach Southern Miss in the December 24th Hawaii Bowl.
