Coaching rumors: Larry Fedora might be considered for Mississippi State job

An interesting name from the ACC reportedly could be considered to become Mississippi State’s next coach.

On Tuesday, Football Scoop’s Scott Roussel dropped a nugget that North Carolina coach Larry Fedora might be an option for the Bulldogs. Per Roussel, Fedora “has been eyeing SEC opportunities for the past year or so.”

Here’s more from the report:

One interesting whisper we’ve heard is that Larry Fedora might be considered for the position. Fedora had a great run at Southern Miss before ascending to his current position at North Carolina. Word has been that Fedora has been eyeing SEC opportunities for the past year or so. Perhaps this is the one. Larry Fedora most definitely fits the “ball coach” description as well.

Fedora would be solid option for Mississippi State in its attempt to replace Dan Mullen, if this report is accurate. Fedora is 77-53 as a coach. He was Southern Miss’ coach from 2008 to 2011, before reaching his current position with the Tar Heels before the 2012 season. (That connection to Mississippi is appealing, for sure.)

Fedora is 43-34 with North Carolina, with the Tar Heels posting a 3-9 mark this season. Mississippi State is 8-4 this year, with the Bulldogs coming off a loss to Ole Miss last Thursday.
