Seth Littrell may become the topic of job speculation, but he's focused on his 'great opportunity' at UNT

DENTON -- North Texas coach Seth Littrell knows there are two ends of the coaching spectrum during the final weeks of the regular season.

One of them features a settlement check and unemployment. The other is speculation about moving up for a bigger job. Given those two options, the Mean Green's third-year coach naturally prefers the latter.

"It's better to be on that end of the deal than the other end of the deal," Littrell said Tuesday during his weekly news conference.

Even though the Mean Green (7-3, 3-3 Conference USA) are coming off a humbling loss and a relatively tough stretch, Littrell appears to have the brighter career outlook of the two coaches who will be on the field for Saturday's game between UNT and Florida Atlantic (5-5, 3-3 C-USA).
