The head coaching carousel may have ground to a halt with all the current vacancies filled, but there are still plenty of slots for assistant coaches to fill. With offensive coordinator Blake Anderson taking over as head coach at Arkansas State, Larry Fedora looked north to Indiana to sign Seth Littrell as his replacement.
Despite taking over as offensive coordinator for one of the less talented teams in the Big Ten, Littrell crafted one of the most exciting offenses in the conference (not so hard), running a scheme that could take down opponents with either run or pass and setting many team records along the way. At UNC, he will have far more talent at his disposal.
Despite learning much of his trade under Mike Leach at Texas Tech, Littrell toned down the “Air Raid’ attack under Kevin Wilson at Indiana, and this new style is far more in keeping with the offense run in Chapel Hill. Littrell will also coach tight ends and fullbacks, part of his responsibilities in the past, and another role where he has had success.
Co-offensive coordinator Kevin Johns will take over the sole coordinator role in Littrell’s place.
