It's the busiest time of the year in the college football coaching carousel world, with several major programs opting to make a change in leadership heading into 2019.

It's important to remember the families of these head coaches at this point in the season. They're often forced to go through quite a bit.

Today, North Carolina announced that its head coach, Larry Fedora, had been fired.

Fedora's daughter took to Twitter to release a heartfelt statement:

"My hero & my coach. Prouder than ever to be your daughter," she writes.

Well said, Sydney.

North Carolina decided it was time to move on from Fedora, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a UNC fan who wasn't appreciative of what he did for the program.
