North Carolina

Littrell added to UNC football staff

Posted January 24, 2014

UNC head coach Larry Fedora during play at Kenan Stadium between the University of North Carolina Tar Heels and the Boston College Eagles on October 26, 2013 in Chapel Hill, NC.

— Seth Littrell has been hired as the Tar Heels’ assistant head coach for offense and tight ends coach, the school announced Friday.

Littrell most recently coached at Indiana where the Hoosiers finished ninth in the country in total offense in 2013, averaging 508.5 yards per game. Indiana was one of only three teams in the nation to average more than 300 yards passing and 200 yards rushing per game a year ago.

“Seth has been a successful offensive coach and recruiter everywhere he’s been,” said head coach Larry Fedora. “I believe he’ll be a great fit for our program and for this University. He will bring some new ideas to our offensive system and I’m excited to have him in Chapel Hill.”

“I’m excited to be here and look forward to working for a great institution,” said Littrell. “This is a great coaching staff and I can’t wait to meet our players and get to work.”

Littrell replaces Blake Anderson who left to become head coach at Arkansas State. Current assistants Gunter Brewer (wide receivers) and Chris Kapilovic (offensive line) have been named co-offensive coordinators.

Under Littrell’s guidance last season, Indiana set single-season records with 6,102 total yards, 508.5 yards per game, 461 points, 38.4 points per game, 36 passing touchdowns, 62 total touchdowns and 300 first downs. Tight end Ted Bolser thrived in his system, seting IU career records for receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns by a tight end.

In Littrell’s first season as Indiana’s offensive coordinator in 2012, the Hoosiers led the Big Ten and ranked 17th nationally in passing offense (311.2). They finished second in the conference in total offense (442.0) and fourth in scoring offense (30.8).

Prior to his stint at Indiana, Littrell coached three seasons at Arizona, where his 2011 offense ranked third nationally in passing offense (370.8) and 15th in total offense (465.2).

Prior to Arizona, Littrell served four years as running backs coach at Texas Tech (2005-08) under Mike Leach. He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Kansas from 2002-04. 

Littrell has coached in seven bowl games, played in two and was team captain on Oklahoma’s 2000 national championship team. He was a four-year letterwinner at Oklahoma where he rushed for 231 yards and seven touchdowns in 1999 and finished his career with 11 rushing scores.

    So, he was an offensive coordinator at IU before coming to UNC and is now a deputy offensive coordinator? Wow. UNC-CH boosting their quality in the coaching department.

    Perhaps the ACC will be a bit more resurgent.
