Former North Carolina head football coach Larry Fedora has reportedly landed a new job in college football. He's reportedly heading to the Big 12.

Tom Herman is reportedly hiring the former ACC head football coach. Fedora will reportedly be serving as an analyst.

Anwar Richardson first reported the news.

"Former North Carolina coach Larry Fedora has officially accepted an analyst position on Texas football coach Tom Herman’s staff, according to my sources. Last year, Herman strengthened his staff by hiring Herb Hand. Now, Herman strengthens his support staff with Fedora," he reports.

Fired college football head coaches taking off-the-field roles at major college football programs for a season or two has become pretty common.

We've seen it most notably with Nick Saban and Alabama. The Crimson Tide have hired several former prominent head coaches for a season or two. They've then gone on to take bigger jobs elsewhere.

Fedora, 56, was North Carolina's head coach from 2012-18. The former head coach is a Texas native, coaching at the high school level in the state and at Baylor for several seasons.

Stay tuned for an official announcement on the hire.
