  2. Neal Smatresk, president of the University of North Texas, hit two pedestrians with his Toyota Highlander on the night of Thursday, Dec. 10, according to a police report obtained by the Denton Record-Chronicle. The Denton Fire Department took both pedestrians to Denton Regional Medical Center. Police allowed Smatresk to leave the scene in his vehicle. Neither he nor the pedestrians were charged with a traffic violation. The accident happened as Smatresk was leaving a shopping center at 1776 Teasley Lane at 9:19 p.m., according to the report. He was alone in the car. The intersection is two blo
  3. North Carolina offensive coordinator Seth Littrell will be named coach at North Texas, a source told ESPN. Littrell and the Tar Heels will play in their first ACC title game Saturday against Clemson. Littrell, 37, has been at UNC the past two years. Before joing the Tar Heels, Littrell was an offensive coordinator at Indiana (2012-13) and Arizona (2009-11). He also was an assistant at Texas Tech from 2005-08.

  5. Tulane made it official Saturday morning when the school fired football coach Curtis Johnson. Johnson finished 15-34 in his four seasons, culminating with a 45-34 loss to Tulsa on Friday evening. "I want to thank CJ for his hard work and his dedication to rebuilding the Green Wave football program. His efforts were rewarded in 2013 when Tulane reached its first bowl in 11 years. Since then, however, the program has not progressed to the level that we aspire to," said Tulane athletic director Rick Dickson in a press release. Tulane also indicated the hiring process for Johnson's successor wil
  6. When Mac was hire it seemed like even though we didn't know much about him we all got behind him and there was optimism. I worry that with this hire there will still be some who just will not be satisfied no matter who it is. A good aspect of a new coaching hire is that it gives the program a chance to put behind the skeletons from the past behind them and unite behind a new leader. UNT needs to have a sense of optimism again. Just two years ago we were very optimistic about our football program. I believe we can get back to that happy place again. My sincerest hope is that even if our next
  7. Old Dominion added a familiar name to its football schedule Wednesday, announcing a home-and-home series with East Carolina in 2018 and 2019. The Monarchs will travel to Greenville, N.C., on Sept. 29, 2018, then host the Pirates on Sept. 28, 2019, ODU athletic director Wood Selig said. ECU is the fifth of six regional Football Bowl Subdivision schools the Monarchs have sought to add to their schedule since announcing three years ago they were moving up to FBS. ODU also has home-and-home agreements with Virginia Tech, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Wake Forest. ODU hopes to add at lea

  9. Link: http://www.dentonrc.com/business-tech/denton-business-headlines/20151024-kim-phillips-gamedays-at-unt-becoming-big-draw.ece Everyone is talking about it. Not enough touchdowns. A head coach change midseason. It has looked to laymen like an unusual flurry of activity in what is obviously not the University of North Texas Mean Green’s most stellar season. I’ll be honest: I don’t know the whys about all that. I can talk with authority about how things appear to laymen because I am the ultimate when it comes to football. I don’t really even qualify as an armchair fan, much less quarterback.
  10. North Texas While the Mean Green are located in the excellent recruiting grounds of the Dallas-For Worth area, there is obviously a ton of competition, with 11 other FBS schools calling Texas home -- and many others attempting to find recruits in the Lone Star State. North Texas is near the bottom of the pecking order, especially when it does things like lose to Portland State by 59 points. McCarney was fired quickly after the game. In the last five years, North Texas' best recruiting class, according to 247Sports, ranked 97thnationally. The Mean Green went to a bowl game in 2013, but the last

  13. The Vikings went into the North Dakota game having relied heavily on the run and without having showed a lot in the passing game — and not much changed. PSU had trouble throwing the ball, other than Kuresa’s 76-yard TD slant pass-and-run to fleet Grant High graduate Paris Penn on the team’s first play from scrimmage. North Dakota was playing to stop the run first, which led to PSU gaining only 97 yards on 30 carries. “When that’s happening, we need to throw the football better,” Barnum says. “When there’s eight or nine (defenders) in the box, two more than us, we have to distribute to our rece

  16. President and chancellors from Sun Belt Conference schools will meet Sunday in Dallas to vote on extending a possible membership invitation, it’s been learned. It’s known that Coastal Carolina and Eastern Kentucky have been under consideration, and that current football-only member New Mexico State remains a candidate for full-fledged membership. All three schools were paid on-campus visits by Sun Belt reps at some point earlier this year, including two this month. Seventy-five percent approval is required to issue an invite, however, so it’s also possible that no bid will go out. What criteri
  17. A writer for Making Music magazine wrote that in Denton “Every other person you meet is a musician, and those that aren’t, have a love and respect for music that borders on obsession.” With a population just over 110,000, Denton has over 100 active bands, and because of its small size, musicians here have less ego and more soul. In 2008, Paste Magazine named the city’s music scene the best in the country and according to Citylab, the town’s growing music scene has led to a citywide boom. But unlike other towns, Denton has intentionally built its music scene collaboratively, through projects li
  18. There was some pretty big news on the UNT athletics front, and it had nothing to do with football practice. It looks like UNT is on the verge of bumping up its student athletic fee. The school’s students are currently paying $10 a semester credit hour, or about $300 a year. Getting that fee through back in 2008 was an epic battle that might have saved UNT’s football program as a viable FBS operation. That fee hasn’t budged since, but UNT’s regents will consider bumping it up $1 a credit hour. That might not sound like much, and it isn’t — at least not on the basis of an individual student. It’
  19. And speaking of UNT, the Mean Green weren’t mentioned in ESPN’s early preview. The Mean Green enter the 2015-16 season looking for their first winning campaign under Benford in his fourth season. UNT has some key players back, including Jeremy Combs and Maurice Anifiok and add Texas A&M transfer point guard J-Mychal Reese. The Mean Green have some talented players to work with, but will be a dark horse in the league race after finishing 14-17 last season. read more: http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2015/07/national-site-publishes-early-look-at-c-usa-hoops-league.html/
  20. In the next step to a possible invitation into college football's elite fraternity, the University of Houston will open the checkbook and pay a record amount in assistant coaching salaries this season. The nine full-time assistants on new coach Tom Herman's staff will earn $2.113 million, a 17 percent increase from 2014, according to contracts obtained by the Houston Chronicle through an open-records request. The total - nearly $300,000 more than the $1.82 million from last season - puts UH ahead of a handful of schools from the Power 5 conferences based on the most recent salary-pool figures
