The Tar Heels compete as part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. The program has had 34 head coaches, and one interim head coach, since it began play during the 1888 season.[1][2] Since January 2012, Larry Fedora has served as North Carolina's head coach.[3]

Playing as the Tar Heels, the team has played more than 1,100 games over 121 seasons.[2] In that time, 9 coaches have led the Tar Heels in postseason bowl games: Carl Snavely, Jim Hickey, Bill Dooley, Dick Crum, Mack Brown, Carl Torbush, John Bunting, Butch Davis, and Everett Withers.[1] Four of those coaches also won conference championships: Snavely captured three as a member of the Southern Conference and Hickey, Dooley, and Crum won a combined five as a member of the ACC.[1]

Dooley is the leader in seasons coached and games won, with 124 victories during his 11 years with the program.[4] Branch Bocock has the highest winning percentage of those who have coached more than one game, with .812.[4] Gene McEver has the lowest winning percentage of those who have coached more than one game, with .067.[4] Of the 33 different head coaches who have led the Tar Heels, Jim Tatum[5] and Snavely[6] have been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, Indiana.
