CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina will turn to offensive line coach Chris Kapilovic to run the Tar Heels' high-scoring offense.

Head coach Larry Fedora said Wednesday that Kapilovic has been promoted to offensive coordinator, while quarterbacks coach Keith Heckendorf will serve as passing game coordinator. It's part of what Kapilovic described as a collaborative effort to run an offense that set a program record by averaging 40.7 points and 486.9 yards per game during an 11-win season in 2015.

Fedora's announcement came on national signing day, though he said didn't rush to name Littrell's replacement because the Tar Heels would continue to run the no-huddle spread attack he brought with him from Southern Mississippi after the 2011 season.

Kapilovic replaces Seth Littrell, who left to become head coach at North Texas.
