  1. He was once among the hottest names in college football coaching circles, with a potential path to one day coach his alma mater, Oklahoma. Two years later, Seth Littrell remains at North Texas as he prepares for its final game of the year in what will likely be the Mean Green’s second straight losing season.

  2. TCU assistant Doug Meacham will interview at North Texas for the open head coaching position as one of two finalists, according to a person familiar with the interview schedule. North Carolina assistant Seth Littrell is the other finalist. Meacham has been the offensive coordinator at TCU the past two seasons. He was hired from Houston, where he was offensive coordinator, to install the Air Raid offense for the Horned Frogs and brought in Sonny Cumbie from Texas Tech as co-offensive coordinator. Under Meacham and Cumbie, the TCU offense has been one of the best in the country, and quarterback
  3. North Texas athletic director Rick Villarreal interviewed Oklahoma offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley this week for the Mean Green’s open head football coaching vacancy, according to a university official. It’s unclear whether Riley was the first candidate to be interviewed, but he was the most recent from a list of candidates that is believed to include Arizona State offensive line coach Chris Thomsen, the former head coach at Abilene Christian, and Texas A&M offensive coordinator Steve Spavital. Villarreal is also expected to inquire about the interest of TCU co-offensive coordinators D
  4. North Texas coach Dan McCarney, already excitable when it comes to the subject of his football team, turned his annual National Signing Day news conference into a stem-winder. Quarterback has become his Niagara Falls topic. He is resolved to fixing instability at the position. Three started there last season and all, in the estimation of the coach, performed below average during a 4-8 campaign. Youre damn right were not good enough, said McCarney on Wednesday at Apogee Stadium. We werent productive, we werent consistent and we didnt play good enough at the quarterback position to get this
  5. Although Texas is 9-0 against UNT and has won the last three meetings (2002, 2004, 2006) by a combined margin of 148-7, Strong said he has a healthy respect for a Mean Green squad that posted a better record last season (9-4) than the Longhorns (8-5). Strong downplayed the significance of sending a statement to fans with a lopsided victory over a 24-point underdog in his debut in Austin. “Winning 3-0 would be good for me, just as long as I get that first win,” said Strong, who acknowledged being upbeat about his first game-day atmosphere in Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. “I’m exci
  6. Shortly after he became the president of Baylor University, one of the first pieces of advice Ken Starr received was from a prominent member of the schools board of regents. Starr was told the key to building a great school was to win football games. Only in America does this make perfect sense. From Georgetown to Colgate to Michigan to Texas, ballgames are the best way to build an institution of higher learning. Since Starr took over in June 2010, Baylor has won football games. The Bears are 36-16 the past four years. Bet every dollar you have ever had and will have that Baylors don
  7. That list includes running back Joe Bergeron, defensive back Chevoski Collins and running back Jalen Overstreet. Also bounced from the program, Strong said Sunday, are receivers Montrel Meander and Kendall Sanders, who were charged with second-degree felony sexual assault in July. Two other players were dismissed last spring. Combined with the departure of linebacker Kendall Thompson, a senior who was shifted to a medical scholarship because of recurring injuries, the Longhorns 2014 roster looks a lot thinner at receiver, running back and defensive back than it did last month. A case could
  8. Lone Star State breakdown The expenses and revenues for the 12 Football Bowl Subdivision teams in Texas in 2012. UT San Antonio becomes a full FBS school in 2014. School Expenses Revenue Profit/loss Texas $27.7 $109.4 $81.7 Texas A&M $18.1 $53.8 $35.7 Texas Tech $15.4 $34.6 $19.2 Baylor $20.3 $26.2 $6.0 UTEP $8.7 $11.8 $3.1 North Texas $6.5 $8.2 $1.7 TCU $31.2 $32.5 $1.3 Houston $8.5 $8.5 $0 SMU $14.6 $14.6 $0 Rice $10.7 $10.7 $0 UT San Antonio $6.2 $6.2 $0 Texas State $5.6 $5.6 $0 (2012 figures; In millions) Read more here: http://www.star-telegram.com/2013/12/17/54271
  9. Once at the bottom of the garbage can of FBS teams in Texas, the Mean Green are in the process of remaking their image and are now in a bowl game for the first time in ... 45 years. Wait, that's not right - it just feels like it. The last time UNT was in a bowl was 2004, and this appearance snaps a nine-year drought - the sixth-longest in the nation. "There is no such thing as a bad bowl game," McCarney said on a conference call Sunday night. First of all, that's a load. There are tons of bad bowl games, but McCarney is right in this case. There is no bad bowl for North Texas. The job
  10. DENTON The North Texas men survived a ragged performance before finally shaking off Oklahoma City in the closing minutes for a 78-70 win in an exhibition game Friday night at the Super Pit. The Mean Green struggled on offense, shooting 38.6 percent from the field and 58.3 percent from the free throw line. This is why you play exhibition games, North Texas coach Tony Benford said. We have some things we need to clean up, especially on the defensive end of the floor. Benford also said the team would have to adjust to new hand-check rules this season, evidenced by an average of almost 1 1/
  11. This has not been the easiest last year or so for North Texas head football coach Dan McCarney. The man deserves a break. He suffered a stroke last year, and now recently was in the hospital for another surgery. North Texas said that McCarney had successful surgery last Friday, and is OK. A source said this procedure has nothing to do with the stroke and that McCarney, 59, is fine and back to work. McCarney does not want to be specific about the procedure.

  12. In case you forgot about Tony Mitchell, he is still playing college basketball. This isn't a slam on Mitchell, rather to state the obvious - he is off the map. And for those of you who do know who Mitchell is, he told me on Wednesday he is not sure if he will turn pro after North Texas' basketball season ends. Bet hard that he will, and that even after an ish second season at North Texas his background and atleticism say he can still be a high draft pick. His game, athleticism, and background look very similar to Indiana Pacrers All-Star forward Paul George. Stay with me on this. M
  13. North Texas returns to home base this week relatively unscathed from its excursion into the muck of LSU's swamp, other than a 27-point loss, of course, to the third-ranked team in the country. Rather than the red carpet, awaiting the Mean Green for today's home opener is Texas Southern, a team from the ranks of FCS, and UNT's most distinguished football alum. And coach Dan McCarney's continued scrutiny. The coach's wish list of improvements for this week slipped off his tongue with the unrestrained style of an auctioneer. Unacceptable, the coach said, were missed tackles and drives
  14. ARLINGTON -- Rookie Lance Dunbar rushed for 105 yards, including a 58-yard touchdown, and Dan Bailey made three field goals in a 30-13 win over Miami in the preseason final Wednesday night at Cowboys Stadium. The final roster cutdown is Friday. Dallas opens the regular season at the New York Giants next Wednesday. In the battle for a backup running back job, Dunbar, second-year man Phillip Tanner and rookie fullback Jamize Olawale had strong games. Dunbar and Olawale played at North Texas. Dunbar had a 27-yard punt return to go along with his 105 yards. Tanner had nine carries for 48
