CHAPEL HILL– UNC appears to have found its new offensive coordinator. The Tar Heels are in the process of putting the final touches on the hiring of Indiana’s Seth Littrell, sources say.
Littrell, who served as the Hoosiers’ offensive coordinator the past two seasons, will replace Blake Anderson, who left for the Arkansas State head coaching job.
The 35-year-old Littrell played running back under Mike Leach at Oklahoma in 1999. He went on to become the running backs coach from 2005-2009 at Texas Tech.
From there, Littrell moved to Arizona to lead the Wildcats attack as offensive coordinator. His 2011 offense ranked third nationally in passing offense with 370.3 yards per game and 16th in total offense with 464.8 yards per contest.
Littrell seems to mesh well with the offensive philosophy of UNC Head Coach Larry Fedora. They both employ the no-huddle offense and like to move things along at warp-speed. In fact, Littrell told the Big Ten Network last fall that he liked to run 90-100 plays per game.
