North Texas AD Wren Baker has been busy this offseason. He's been working to get funding for the Mean Green's Indoor Practice Facility, hiring a new basketball coach, and now giving Seth Littrell an extension and a raise.
The tzar of North Texas sports, Brett Vito, reported that Littrell's base salary will increase to $900,000 and with incentives he's projected to make $1 million. Littrell's original deal paid him $725,000 per season with incentives up to over $880,000.
In his first season, Littrell guided the Mean Green to a Heart of Dallas Bowl invite and a 5-8 record. If anything he's proven that he is liked and respected enough to draw some top flight assistants to Denton. Of his initial staff, three were poached by Power 5 schools this offseason with Brad Davis moving to coach O-line at Florida, Mike Ekeler moving to North Carolina to coach linebackers, and defensive line coach Derrick LeBlanc going to Kentucky.
Baker has also increased assistant coaching salaries by 11% this offseason as Littrell retools his staff for the second time in two season. Littrell's new base salary now sits among the top compensation packages in Conference USA.
