Because of a new NCAA rule that excludes all NCAA Division I coaches from speaking, or even attending, the THSCA coaching clinic, North Carolina’s Larry Fedora’s had to cancel his appearance. “I disagree with it 100 percent,” said Navasota head football coach Lee Fedora, Larry’s brother.

As fun as a day trip to play paintball with your friends can be, there is also a downside to the activity – the welts. Anyone who has ever played paintball knows that getting hit hurts, regardless of how tough you are. Tuesday afternoon, North Carolina football head coach Larry Fedora shared a photo of what he did to his tight ends coach Seth Littrell. (College Spun)

ACC's Coastal Division parity provides opportunity for North Carolina

The ACC's Top 10 Heisman Candidates for 2014

5. Marquise Williams, QB, North Carolina: Williams flashed a lot of ability last fall and should only continue to develop. The Tar Heels went 6-1 over their final seven games and the offense averaged over 40 points per game due in large part to his play. With a full season of making plays, Williams has a chance to get into the national conversation. (Athlon Sports)

Fedora: NCAA investigation used by opposing coaches on recruiting trail

The ongoing NCAA investigation into academic fraud at North Carolina hasn't been a focal point in the Tar Heels' locker room, coach Larry Fedora said at Monday's ACC Kickoff, but it's been an ever-present speed bump on the recruiting trail. The NCAA last month reopened the investigation, which had been concluded in 2012 and which Fedora said he'd believed was closed for good, sparking another round of negative recruiting from competing schools.

Tar Heels aim to reverse last season’s football start

By the end of the 2013 season, North Carolina was one of the hottest football teams in the ACC, winning six of its last seven games. But the start of the season? A rocky 1-5 overall record. Head coach Larry Fedora doesn’t expect the same this season, and he said it has less to do with UNC’s opening opponent (Liberty) than most might think. (Greensboro News & Record)

Q&A with Larry Fedora, Part I

With the quarterback competition being a major topic, does the fact that you chose Marquise to (represent UNC at the ACC Kickoff), speak to how he’s handled things? "I think he’s done a great job handling it. That’s what I was proud of him about. A lot of people took for granted that Marquise Williams is going to be the starting quarterback. When I made the statement that it was wide open, Marquise never batted an eye." (Inside Carolina)

Ryan Switzer Named Preseason All-ACC

Sophomore punt returner/wide receiver Ryan Switzer was named to the preseason All-ACC as a specialist. He was the only Tar Heel named to the team which included Florida State getting nine players selected. One of the interesting things to watch this season with Switzer is how much his presence impacts what other teams do when punting to UNC. (Tar Heel Blog)

Tar Heels’ Williams ready to lead offense

Marquise Williams is ready to run the offense from the start this fall. “You can’t be in a playful manner. You have to take everything serious. When you are at practice, it has to be like a game,” Williams said. Williams, now a junior, admitted he wasn’t much of a practice player in high school at Mallard Creek. It took him until he got to Chapel Hill for him to realize what he needs to do to be a leader. (New Bern Sun Journal)

Defensive Warrior Otis Embracing Tar Heel ‘Family’

UNC senior bandit Norkeithus Otis senses a different aura around the family-oriented Tar Heel locker room heading into the 2014 campaign. The 2014 Bednarik Watch List and all-conference candidate says there’s just something different about the run-in to the fall this year. “You can just see the focus on everybody. Everybody’s ready to get after it,” Otis says. (

Elijah Hood already impressing Fedora, teammates

Elijah Hood has yet to play in his first college game but already he is doing things at North Carolina that people around him have never seen. Some of those things involve physical feats and others are more mental. First, the physical. Hood, a former standout at Charlotte Catholic High where he became one of the most sought prospects in the nation, recently squatted 605 pounds. (Charlotte Observer)

Fedora looks ahead with confidence

2013 was one of those seasons Larry Fedora didn't want to be over. UNC was gaining confidence as the coaching staff saw its team "grow leaps and bounds every week," leading to the season finale 39-17 Belk Bowl win against Cincinnati. Fedora is excited now though, and looking to carry that momentum into 2014 as he coaches the least veteran roster of his career. (Tar Heel Illustrated)
