This had to happen. It's science. Or marketing. Or strategy. Or something like that. At the end of the day, Seth went 44-44 over 7 seasons. In football, 7 years is a gigantic indication that our future would continue to hover around .500. That message translates to, "Hey. We're North Texas. We're content with mediocrity." If you're a school, like UNT, that's looking to boost its national status, then that message makes it hard to acheive. Especially, when you consider the recent and continued investments in athletics that the school has made (and has publicly stated that it will continue to do). They realize that sports are a top communicator of the brand and perception. He had to go.
Seth Littrell | North Texas Total compensation: $1,897,500 Although making nearly $2 million is nothing to sneeze at outside the world of college football, North Texas’ play on the field lately doesn’t even justify Littrell making that. Hovering around .500 with a losing record in each of the last three years would be pink-slip time for most coaches. Plus, Littrell has lost all five of his bowl games. He came into 2022 with the oldest starting quarterback in the nation with a chance to make some noise in Conference USA. Should the Mean Green fail to show significant progress, the buyout would be $1.575 million if he is relieved of his duties on Dec. 1.

Friends, our long, hideous Benford nightmare might finally be within weeks of coming to a conclusion. Inspired by @Cerebus and his hourly Seth Littrell grade polls, I thought it might make sense to tap in to the powerful GMG brain trust and maybe start think tanking our ideal candidates. Please review the 8 candidates that the Neinas Consulting Firm suggested, and vote accordingly. Share your thoughts, and if you have a different candidate you'd like to introduce to the discussion, please be sure to elaborate in a response post.
