After losing offensive coordinator Blake Anderson to the open Arkansas State head coaching job, UNC needed another coordinator to keep Larry Fedora's up-tempo, quick strike offense humming.

The Tar Heels could've done a lot worse than Indiana's Seth Littrell, if a report from Carolina Blue's Tom Loy proves true.

Per Loy:

Last week, CarolinaBlue.com reported that Littrell was the leading candidate for the job and it looks like a deal may have actually been reached this weekend in Chapel Hill.

The Tar Heels are still looking at candidates for the quarterbacks coach opening, but we expect Littrell to be added to the staff before that announcement is made.

Littrell had been mentioned as a potential candidate to fill Anderson's shoes earlier in the month, and his profile should mesh well with a UNC team that caught fire down the stretch, winning six of its last seven games, including a 39-17 victory over Cincinnati in the Belk Bowl.

The Tar Heels finished 35th in offensive S&P+ ratings and averaged 32.7 points per game. Indiana, despite a 5-7 record, averaged 38.4 points per game under Littrell and was 16th in those same S&P+ rankings. Ultimately the Hoosiers were done in by their defense and have already hired former Wake Forest assistant Brian Knorr to the defensive coordinator position.

Prior to his time in Indiana, Littrell was with Arizona from 2009-11. He also spent four years coaching running backs at Texas Tech.
