Coaching Candidates - Seth Littrell

Seth Littrell has been mentioned by some fans as a candidate to replace Bill Snyder at Kansas State.  Littrell is 40 years old and is currently the head coach of North Texas in Conference USA.  Littrell played running back at Oklahoma from 1998-2001.  He's had assistant coaching stints at Kansas, Texas Tech, Arizona, Indiana, and North Carolina before landing the head coaching gig at North Texas in 2016.

Here is his head coaching record at North Texas:

He made a bowl game as a 5-7 team in 2016 and won their division in 2017 with a 7-1 conference record.  They are currently 7-2 overall and 3-2 in their division.  They beat Arkansas on the road earlier this season 44-17 but have lost to Louisiana Tech and UAB.

Littrell has moved around a lot but has seen some success at North Texas.  He'll most likely make his third straight bowl game this season.  North Texas was 1-11 the season before he took over as coach, so he got them turned around pretty quickly.  He also has some ties to Kansas, serving as a graduate assistant at KU from 2002-2004.

Whether he is a serious candidate or if he is even interested in the job is pure speculation at this point, but there have been some rumors that the K-State administration has been in contact with him.  I wouldn't be real excited with a hire like this, but he has shown he is at least a decent head coach.
