North Carolina is in the process of hiring Seth Littrell as its next offensive coordinator. A source close to the team said that nothing has been finalized, but Littrell is currently in negotiations and is expected to take the job.

Littrell has spent the past two seasons as the offensive coordinator at Indiana, which finished ninth in the country in total offense (508.5) and 16th in scoring offense (38.4) in 2013. The Tar Heels finished 49th in total offense (425.7) and 43rd in scoring offense (32.7) this past season.

Before coaching at Indiana, the 2000 Oklahoma graduate spent four years as the running backs coach at Texas Tech from 2005-08 — where Littrell studied under up-tempo, spread guru Mike Leach — and then three years in Arizona, including one as an offensive coordinator and one as a co-offensive coordinator.

Littrell would replace Blake Anderson, who was recently named the head coach at Arkansas State. Anderson came over with Larry Fedora from Southern Miss and was the offensive coordinator for Fedora’s first two seasons at UNC.
