Baylor plans to hire former North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora as its next offensive coordinator, Yahoo Sports reported Saturday.

Fedora, 57, spent last season as an analyst for the University of Texas.

He joins the staff of new Bears coach Dave Aranda, the former LSU defensive coordinator who was hired last week to replace Matt Rhule. Rhule left Waco to become head coach of the NFL's Carolina Panthers.

Fedora compiled a 45-43 record at North Carolina from 2012-18 but was fired after his teams posted 3-9 and 2-9 record in his last two seasons in Chapel Hill. His Tar Heels made four bowl appearances.

He was 34-19 as the head coach with four bowl appearances in four seasons at Southern Miss from 2008-11.

A proponent of the spread offense, Fedora served as the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State under coach Mike Gundy from 2005-07.

This will be his second stint in Waco, where he coached tight ends, wide receivers and running backs from 1991-96.
