Complete coverage of North Carolina Football.

Tar Heels football team starting to receive Jordan Brand gear

Back in March it was revealed that the Tar Heels would be the second college football program to officially be sponsored by Jordan Brand, joining the University of Michigan. The school’s basketball program has been sponsored by Jordan Brand for years and has shown off some pretty cool player exclusive shoes. Now it’s the football team’s turn. (Keeping It Heel)

Carolina's Larry Fedora reloads his attack

Larry Fedora walks into a room. No, that’s not the first line of a joke. It’s how the Carolina football coach takes over a room. He just walks in. It could be a Friday in July or a Saturday in October. Fedora has one speed. On. He walked into a room back in July 2012 at the N.C. Coaches Association clinic in Greensboro.

UNC’s ‘Dark Side’ Defense Ready for Primetime

After two years of playing a conservative scheme to complement one of the nation’s top offenses, first-year UNC defensive coordinator John Papuchis is taking off the training wheels. With quarterback Mitch Trubisky and his experienced skill players no longer on the roster, the defense will be called upon while Larry Fedora molds his offense with new faces. (Inside Carolina)

Why Larry Fedora’s preseason countdown could be more stressful than usual at UNC

During his five seasons as the head football coach at North Carolina, Larry Fedora has made a habit of embracing countdowns. He can often recite the precise number of days until an anticipated game, and so he might understand better than the most the fleeting commodity of time. Fedora has guided the Tar Heels to 19 victories during the past two seasons. (Durham Herald-Sun)

UNC’s Fedora: ‘We still expect to compete for a Coastal Division championship’

Questions surround the North Carolina football team ahead of the 2017 season, but Tar Heels coach Larry Fedora remains adamant about the program’s mission. “No matter what the expectations are on the outside, we still expect to compete for a Coastal Division championship,” Fedora said on Friday during the Atlantic Coast Conference’s preseason media event in Charlotte. (The Robesonian)

The Case For Each UNC Quarterback

Four quarterbacks will compete for the starting job at North Carolina, and there’s no indication any of them have an edge at this time. It likely will be a two-man battle by mid-August and a starter named the week of the season opener versus California at Kenan Stadium. So, lets take a look at each of the four quarterbacks and make a case for each winning the job. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Barth Brothers host annual kicking camp

Chicago Bears Kicker and Wilmington native Connor Barth, along with his brother Casey, held their annual kicking camp at Hoggard High School. “It’s an honor to be able to do this every year and give back some of the knowledge that we gained from here and at UNC and for Connor from the pros,” Former Hoggard and UNC Tar-Heel Kicker Casey Barth said. (WWAY)

Wanted: Starting quarterbacks for the ACC’s Coastal Division

With five of seven ACC Coastal Division teams replacing starting quarterbacks, the division that hasn't seen a repeat champion since 2010-11 could be up for grabs yet again. There is no definitive favorite. North Carolina might have had the edge had Mitch Trubisky not turned pro a year early and been selected No. 2 overall in the NFL draft. (Associated Press)

Chazz Surratt remains in four-player competition for UNC QB job

Former East Lincoln High star Chazz Surratt remains in a competition for the University of North Carolina starting quarterback job. Tar Heels coach Larry Fedora left little doubt that the decision about his team’s starting quarterback may last until just before the Sept. 2 season-opener against California. “In a perfect world, it would’ve been last spring,” Fedora said. (Gaston Gazette)

Bentley Spain was learning to be a dominant lineman before he got to UNC

UNC offensive lineman Bentley Spain is an expert of technique. Sure, the senior is blessed with size, standing at 6-foot-6 and 285 pounds. He’s endowed with strength, winning a conference championship in discus at Providence High. But the Outland Trophy candidate knows he couldn’t anchor UNC’s offensive line without proper coaching throughout his youth. (Charlotte Observer)

Video: Larry Fedora ACC Kickoff Press Conference

UNC faces offensive challenge this season

By Larry Fedora's count - he's spent the last 18 years running the same offensive system. Is the system so good that you can plug in entirely new pieces and still keep humming? That's the question I asked Larry today. His answer? "We'll find out." Fed said he's never faced a challenge quite like the one he faces on the offensive side of the ball this season. (ABC 11)

UNC searching for QB, will rely on defense in 2017

North Carolina and Larry Fedora are in a position unfamiliar: no clear best-option at starting quarterback. For the Tar Heels and the coach who hangs is offense on a fast, QB-centered system, 2017 starts like no other season has. “In all my years, I’ve never experienced this,” Fedora said at ACC Kickoff Friday. “It’s a little bit unknown for me." (WRAL Sports Fan)

Brandon Harris Watch Set to Begin at UNC

The Brandon Harris experiment is upon us. The former LSU starting quarterback turned North Carolina graduate transfer has only been in Chapel Hill for a few short weeks and already fans and media alike have anointed him as the Tar Heels’ 2017 starter. Larry Fedora did his best to dampen those expectations at the ACC Kickoff on Friday. (Inside Carolina)
