Throwback Thursday: NT Introduces Seth Littrell As Head Coach
Mean Green Sports Revisits Some of the Year's Biggest Highlights
It’s Throwback Thursday and MeanGreenSports.com is revisiting some of the most notable moments of the 2015-16 North Texas Athletics calendar.
For this week’s installment of the series, we take a look back at the hiring of head football coach Seth Littrell on December 5 of last year.
Littrell, 37, one of the brightest offensive minds in college football, arrived in Denton after serving as the assistant head coach for offense and tight ends at North Carolina for the past two seasons. The Muskogee, Oklahoma native, is the youngest coach in Conference USA and will be the fifth youngest in the nation when he coaches his first game on Saturday, Sept. 3 at Apogee Stadium against SMU.
University president Neil Smatresk introduced Littrell officially with a press conference on December 7, 2015 at the Hub International Club inside of Apogee. Following a whirlwind month, where Littrell assembled his coaching staff and hit the recruiting trail to land his first signing class in February, the Mean Green completed a strong spring session, culminating with the Green-White Scrimmage on April 23.
The Mean Green are slated to open fall camp in early August, in preparation for Littrell’s first season at the helm of the program.
Stay tuned for another Mean Green highlight next Thursday.
