North Carolina hires Indiana OC Seth Littrell


The North Carolina Tar Heels have found their new offensive coordinator.

The Tar Heels have hired Indiana Hoosiers’ offensive coordinator Seth Littrell.

Tom Loy of 24/7 Sports first broke the story.

The Tar Heels are still looking at candidates for the quarterbacks coach opening, but we expect Littrell to be added to the staff before that announcement is made.

Littrell ran one of the nation’s top offenses at Indiana last season and as a unit, finished No. 9 in the country. His offense averaged 201.8 rushing yards per game and was No. 30 in the nation, while the passing attack averaged 306.7 yards per game and was No. 18 in the land.

Tar Heels head coach Larry Fedora likes to run an up tempo offense and like the way Blake Anderson ran his system. So did Arkansas State, which is why they named Anderson their head coach last month.

Indiana promoted co-offensive coordinator, wide receivers and quarterbacks coach Kevin Johns to replace Littrell.

Indiana officially announced the moves Tuesday.
