Littrell is way too smart. He knows that in this day and age you never want to be more than a full tank of gas away from home and family. Besides the job, the pay, the opportunity and location are pretty darn good right here at North Texas.

Bohl, Bowden, and Fritz all seem like the guys that would be hungrier for the gig from their current positions and would probably take less in the way of salary.

If Fritz were to be hired it would be interesting to see if he would implement the triple option in the Big12.

If he were hired, there is no question that is exactly what he would do.  

And it's so crazy, it just might work.

This doesn't seem correct. Are you sure you didn't forget to account for the distance in football attitude between those two places?

He'd better off staying here than taking that job.  I, on the hand, have become a huge Texas Tech fan this season.  I need to see pretty boy keep his job.  With another season like last year, Seth Littrell checks a lot of boxes on their list. 

I wonder about this because pretty boy has an offense also but no defense, kinda like us.  I wonder if they would see it as a trade upward or not.

I was in a group at the coaches caravan when a similar comment was posed about his being gone at the first better offer.  His response was that if you believe that then you don't know me very well.  

Just my personal opinion but I believe that Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Arkansas and maybe Texas Tech are about the only offers that he would strongly consider at this time.  He is building a real culture and I believe that he'd like to see more success before he thinks strongly about leaving.  He seems loyal to his players and it could be that he feels that this mission isn't complete.

I think Tech and ok.st will be in the coaching market this year, so we'll see. Hopefully SL name is brought up. That means on field success. 

IF OSU fires Gundy it might be the dumbest decision in my 30+ years of following college football. He's an OSU guy, wins 10 games a year, and look at their records pre-Gundy. I know their AD made some asinine statements lately but if winning ten games a year at OSU isn't good enough, then nothing is good enough.

Doesn’t the title sum up the poor opportunity? How far could he ride Mason with his senior year success! Tech is more of a concern , but it looks like they are having a good recruiting class.

Here's the thing with the KU job--you get time, money, and the very real probability that Old Man Snyder quits/dies soon at KSU. Last time he retired, K-State went almost immediately into the crapper and KU rose up so fast that they ended up winning a BCS Bowl game, the Orange Bowl over Va Tech. 

To me, the KU job is way more attractive than the Tech job--those people think that they can just find the next Leach protégé and start winning again like they did in his last four seasons in Lubbock. Truth is, the only reason that Leach had the success e had there was his spread offense was way ahead of its time and only UT and OU had the athletes to slow that offense down. Today, everybody plays that system, in some form or fashion, in the Big XII. Tech isn't ever beating out people for recruits because of its remoteness. DFW kids can play in the Big XII now by playing at TCU or Baylor, their two peers in the state for recruiting. 

KU can pay some big time $$$ to a coach, let him rebuild, and then benefit from the inevitable retirement/death of Bill Snyder. They will want someone who has proven to be a rebuilder of a program, from the ashes. Let's ask ourselves who the college football world thinks has done that recently? Hmmm, 2015 season, some team loses 11 of their 12 games, including the 66-7 FCS Portland State loss that ranks as the worst  in modern college football history, then two seasons later, said program has won its division in CUSA and wins 9 games. Just like Arkansas looked at Chad Morris as the guy who rebuilt their program from the ashes into a winning program in 3 years, so others will look at Littrell in the same way IF we have another 8+ win season. But my guess will be that jobs MUCH better than KU will open up for him across the country if he wants them--and seeing how he applied for the Tennessee job after last season, I think we know that this is probably the last season we will see him around Denton if he has the season we all hope and believe he will have.
