North Carolina has reportedly agreed with football head coach Larry Fedora on a seven-year deal to keep him in Chapel Hill.

ESPN’s Joe Schad has the scoop on this deal.

The Tar Heels are one of the hottest teams in the nation heading into Championship Weekend, having won 11 games in a row since losing to South Carolina in the season opener.

North Carolina is preparing to face Clemson in the ACC Championship Game later on Saturday and could potentially vault into the College Football Playoff with a victory over the No. 1-ranked Tigers.
