Seth Littrell will hire Eastern Washington offensive coordinator Bodie Reeder to the same position at North Texas, sources told FootballScoop on Monday.
Reeder spent the past two seasons as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Eastern Washington. In 2018, EWU ranked No. 3 in FCS in total offense while excelling through the air and on the ground — the Eagles 272 yards through the air and 255 on the ground — while averaging 43.1 points per game, fourth-best in FCS. The Eagles scored 48 points or more in seven of their 15 games in 2018, including a 50-19 win over Maine in the FCS semifinals. EWU went 12-3 with a trip to the FCS National Championship in 2018.
Prior to Eastern Washington, Reeder spent three seasons as an offensive quality control assistant working with the quarterbacks at Oklahoma State. There, Reeder worked under the tutelage of Mike Gundy and Mike Yurcich while helping the Cowboys go 27-12 in his three seasons on staff.
Reeder will replace Graham Harrell, who left to become the offensive coordinator at USC. Harrell only left North Texas when Clay Helton’s original hire, Kliff Kingsbury, became the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals.
In addition to the Reeder hiring, sources said Littrell will promote associate head coach, passing game coordinator and inside receivers coach Tommy Mainord to co-offensive coordinator. Mainord is an original member of Littrell’s North Texas staff.
North Texas finished 20th nationally in total offense, 30th in yards per play and 26th in scoring en route to a 9-4 season in 2018.
