After serving as an offensive quality control assistant last season, Tashard Choice will coach North Texas' running backs next season. Seth Littrell made the hiring official last week, adding Choice as the tenth assistant on the Mean Green Staff.
Choice played collegiately at Georgia Tech and Oklahoma before playing for four NFL teams including the Dallas Cowboys. Choice is the first running back coach on Littrell's staff since Tommy Perry back in 2016. Choice joined the Mean Green staff just before the 2017 season. He worked as an intern on the Cowboys coaching staff during the 2016 season through the minority fellowship program.
