After leading North Texas to a bowl game in his first season, head coach Seth Littrell is being awarded with a contract extension. Littrell and the school had agreed on a new contract that would keep him signed on until 2021. Per a press release from the school, the Board of Regents have already approved the new deal.
“Under one of the brightest young coaches in the country, our football program had the second-best turnaround in the nation last season and his performance was recognized by his colleagues and media members around the nation,” said North Texas athletic director Wren Baker in the release. “This new contract represents an aggressive move to keep coach Littrell, his staff, and their positive momentum intact. This is validation of the successful efforts that Seth has led in the early stages of the turnaround of North Texas football.”
Littrell arrived in Denton last year following a difficult one-win season in 2015. The Mean Green finished 5-7, but were able to qualify for a bowl because of the school’s APR.
