Prospective Student-Athlete Information - Football
We are excited about your interest in the University of North Texas and Mean Green football. The University of North Texas named Seth Littrell as its 19th head football coach on Dec. 5, 2015. Littrell, 37, one of the brightest offensive minds in college football, comes to North Texas after serving as the assistant head coach for offense and tight ends at North Carolina. The Muskogee, Oklahoma native will be the youngest coach in Conference USA and fifth youngest in the nation when he coaches his first game.Quick Hits On North Texas
The Mean Green soccer team led the way for North Texas Athletics during the 2015-16 season, winning the Conference USA regular-season title and the tournament championship.

Apogee Stadium, the home of North Texas football, is the long-awaited replacement to Fouts Field and the centerpiece of the Mean Green Athletic Village. Opened in 2011, Apogee Stadium was designed by the same team that created the spectacular Dallas Cowboys Stadium, award-winning architects HKS Sports and Entertainment Group and Manhattan Construction, and they brought some of the same touches to Denton. Apogee features two huge, state-of-the-art video boards, 21 luxury suites, 750 club seats, high-tech facilities for broadcast and print media, banquet rooms and an 1,800-square-foot team apparel store.
The team trains on the Darrell R. Dickey Practice Facility, at the Mean Green Village, which also contains a locker room and a team lounge.

Academic Athletic Services
In the Fall of 2005, the academic and compliance staff relocated to the Mean Green Village. Located on Bonnie Brae, the new Student-Athlete Development Center is three times the size of the former academic center. The Center serves as the cornerstone of the Mean Green Village and is only a short walk from the surrounding sports facilities.
