Established in 1981, the North Texas Athletics Hall of Fame acknowledges former student-athletes, coaches, and administrators whose accomplishments brought credit to the University of North Texas and had a special impact on Mean Green athletics.
Nominees are placed on the ballot by the North Texas Hall of Fame Selection Committee, which is made up of 10 individuals with strong ties to UNT (including multiple Hall of Fame members) and have been designated by the athletic department. Beginning in 2018, the Letterwinners Association president serves on the Selection Committee.
A nominee shall be at least five years removed from the program. The Selection Committee will determine 10 names for inclusion on the ballot each year, with no more than five nominees from any one sport. The final ballot will be distributed to the following voters: active members of the Letterwinners Association; HOF inductees and McCain Award recipients; and the Selection Committee.
A maximum of six former athletes, coaches, and administrators may be inducted in a year (includes the McCain Award honoree, if presented). No more than three individuals from any one sport may be selected in any year. Nominees are not selected for induction are automatically rolled onto the ballot the next year and the selection committee will fill the remaining ballot slots at their annual meeting. A nominee may remain on the ballot for five consecutive years and then must roll off at least one year before reconsideration by the Selection Committee.
Any person may nominate an individual for consideration by the Selection Committee.
