Texas Tech running backs coach Seth Littrell is leaving Lubbock and heading to Tucson, where he'll coach running backs and tight ends.
The news has been confirmed by the Dallas Morning News.
Littrell has spent the past three years as Texas Tech's running backs coach and was an assistant at Kansas before that. He played college football for Oklahoma, where he helped Mike and Bob Stoops win a national championship in 2000. Littrell was the captain of the championship team.
An ace recruiter, Littrell was considered one of the best in the Big 12. He'll likely recruit Oklahoma and Texas for Arizona.
Littrell replaces Dana Dimel, who departed for Kansas State. He can't be officially hired until next week.
