Summary: Larry Fedora returns for his second season as head coach. He had a strong first year, taking over a program plagued by a two-year NCAA investigation and leading the Heels to an 8-4 record. While Carolina will sorely miss tailback Giovani Bernard, the Heels return the heart of the offense, quarterback Bryn Renner, for his senior season. Renner threw for 28 TD's with only 7 interceptions last year.
