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.

      Despite going to a bowl game, last season felt like it could have been a lot better for the Mean Green. COVID interrupted their season at certain points and by the time the bowl game vs Appalachian State came around, North Texas Football looked worn down from the season and then got blown out. This program has been steadily on the rise under head coach Seth Littrell and expects to have a better ending to their season than the one they suffered last season.
      North Texas has been defined by high-powered offenses ever since Littrell took over as the head coach and this one might be the most complete one he has had yet. The quarterback has experience and is talented, the backfield is deep and despite losing receiver Jaelon Darden to the NFL, the receiving corps has playmakers around. The big question that has been around the program ever since Littrell started having success was if he would ever find a defense to complement his offenses? That remains to be seen, even in his sixth season as head coach.
      North Texas football was a program that had struggled to win at a consistent level before Littrell had arrived, but he has taken the Mean Green to a bowl game in four of the five years there and that has raised the expectations. After being one of the most sought-after coaches on the market early during his time at North Texas, some of the shine has worn off of Littrell, and now he finds himself on a bit of a hot seat after his record the past two seasons. This season could be telling on if Littrell can fix the issues that have prevented the program from being better or if it will be more of the same.

      After winning 18 games from 2017-18, the Mean Green have slipped to an 8-14 record over the last two years. Scoring points won’t be a problem for coach Seth Littrell’s team in ’21. However, the defense has to show marked improvement to get back to a bowl.
      Offensive Strength: The Mean Green led Conference USA in scoring (34.4 ppg), yards per play (6.6), and most gains of 40-plus yards (19) last season. Littrell has to sort out an intriguing quarterback battle between Austin Aune and former North Carolina signal-caller Jace Ruder, but this unit should be explosive once again. DeAndre Torrey and Oscar Adaway III lead a strong backfield, and four starters return from one of the top lines in the league. A healthy Jyaire Shorter at receiver will help replace the production left behind by Jaelon Darden.
      Offensive Concern: Can Aune or Ruder claim the job and play with enough consistency to keep the offense on track all year? Shorter’s return is huge, but North Texas needs a couple of other playmakers to emerge at receiver. The offense has to do a better job at managing turnovers after losing 15 in 2020.
      Defensive Strength: Littrell’s hire of veteran coordinator Phil Bennett was a strong move to get a struggling defense pointed in the right direction. Tackle Dion Novil and linebackers Tyreke Davis and KD Davis are three key players among nine returning defensive starters for North Texas in 2021.
      Defensive Concern: This unit allowed a whopping 42.8 points a game and surrendered 6.94 yards per play last season. Even with a new play-caller and help through the transfer portal, major improvement might be a year away.
