Sources: UNC hires Indiana's Seth Littrell as offensive coordinator

Multiple sources are now reporting that the University of North Carolina has hired the Indiana Hoosier offensive coordinator Seth Littrell to the same position at North Carolina.

Larry Fedora hasn’t publicly announced the hiring just yet, but Littrell is set to be North Carolina’s next offensive coordinator. Littrell has spent the past two seasons in the same position at Indiana. He replaces Blake Anderson who is now the head coach at Arkansas State.

Taking over both roles of two departing UNC coaches, Littrell is also expected to coach the tight ends as well in place of the departing Walt Bell who left with Anderson to Arkansas State.

In his first season with Indiana, his passing offense ranked 17th in the country and his offense ranked second in total offense.

Before Indiana, Littrell spent three season with the Arizona Wildcats as running backs and tight ends coach, co-offensive coordinator, and the lone offensive coordinator. He also had brief stinks at Kansas and Texas Tech.

Littrell is a firm believer of the up-tempo and no huddle offense that head coach Larry Fedora has installed at the University of North Carolina. An official announcement from North Carolina is expected sometime later this week.
