Meacham is an Arlington native who played played offensive line at Oklahoma State from 1983 to 1987.

Littrell, the offensive assistant head coach and tight ends coach at North Carolina, has spent two years with the Tar Heels, who are 10-1 going into their game Saturday against North Carolina State. Littrell came to North Carolina from Indiana, which was ninth in the nation in total offense in 2013.
