UNC's Fedora hires 8 assistant coaches

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina coach Larry Fedora is bringing six members of his Southern Mississippi coaching staff with him to the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Offensive assistants Blake Anderson, Walt Bell and Chris Kapilovic will join defensive assistants Deke Adams, Dan Disch and David Duggan with Fedora in his first season as head coach of the Tar Heels.

Fedora also announced the hiring of former Illinois defensive coordinator Vic Koenning as associate head coach for defense. He named former Mississippi assistant Gunter Brewer, who worked at North Carolina from 2000-04, as wide receivers coach.

Fedora still needs to hire a running backs coach. He said he plans to finalize his staff in the next couple of weeks.

Fedora is retaining Tom Myslinski as North Carolina's strength and conditioning coach.
