Dear UNT Faculty and Staff,

I am excited to tell you that Eric Morris will serve as UNT’s new Head Football Coach.

We started the search immediately and I am pleased that Jared Mosley, our new Athletic Director, was able to finalize this hiring prior to our bowl game Saturday.

Coach Morris is a record-setting play caller with a long history in Texas. For more details about Coach Morris, please read the announcement from Athletics.

I believe with Coach Morris joining our roster of great coaches, and Jared leading the vision for our entire athletics program, we will successfully transition to the American Athletic Conference.

Please join me in welcoming Coach Morris to our Mean Green Family as he returns to Texas, and his new home.

UNT Proud,

Neal Smatresk

UNT President
