The Tar Heels have been rolling in the transfer commits over the course of the past two days. In a span of 24 hours, the team landed three commitments at positions of need. Earlier this evening, the team added the fourth commitment in the last couple of days in a veteran transfer kicker.

As announced on his Twitter around 6:30 PM earlier tonight, transfer kicker Ryan Coe has committed to the Tar Heels after just one season with the Bearcats. The 2023 season will be his final season of eligibility at the college level.

Coe spent the first two seasons of his career at Delaware where he handled both place kicking and kickoff specialist. He nailed all 47 of his extra point attempts for the Blue Hens and 26 of his 34 field goals. He also averaged 62.6 yards per kickoff and registered 30 touchbacks in 2021. Coe earned second team All-CAA in 2020-21 and third team All-CAA in 2021.

In his one season with Cincinnati, he earned second team All-AAC recognition in what was the best season of his collegiate career. He nailed all 44 of his extra point attempts and connected on a career-high 19 of his 23 field goal attempts. He also handled kickoff for the Bearcats, registering 45 touchbacks on his 77 kickoffs.

Coe will come in and compete with Noah Burnette who handled the place kicking duties for the entire season and the kickoff duties for the final nine games of the season. Burnette enters the Tar Heels bowl game having made 54 of his 55 extra point attempts, 13 of his 18 field goal attempts and sending 26 of his 51 kickoffs for touchbacks.
