Seth Littrell isn’t going to the Little Apple.
North Texas’ head coach has informed Kansas State he is not interested in the coaching vacancy, a source told the Star-Telegram.
K-State had been linked to Littrell since longtime coach Bill Snyder announced his retirement last week. Littrell met with K-State officials multiple times this week, but opted to stay with North Texas.
Littrell, 40, is considered an up-and-coming coach in the industry. He has led North Texas to bowl eligibility in all three years, including the New Mexico Bowl next week against Utah State. At 9-3, North Texas is looking for its first 10-win season in school history.
Other candidates for the K-State job are expected to include North Dakota State coach Chris Kleiman, Memphis coach Mike Norvell and Troy coach Neal Brown.
