Texas Football Makes Major Coaching Change
Texas football made a major coaching change this week.
Shortly after the Longhorns wrapped up their underwhelming 2019 campaign, school brass made it clear that changes of some sort were coming.
Tom Herman would get at least one more year, but his coordinators were not.
Herman already swapped out his defensive coordinator with former Rutgers head coach Chris Ash. Now he is doing the same thing on offense.
According to Chip Brown of 247 Sports, Herman is hiring Ohio State quarterbacks coach Mike Yurcich to be Texas’ new offensive coordinator.

Yurcich previously served as an offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State.
“Mike Yurcich, the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State for six years before becoming passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Ohio State, will be Texas’ new offensive coordinator,” wrote Brown.
“A source close to the situation told Horns247.com Yurcich has agreed to contract terms with Texas, and an announcement will come this week.”
Herman previously demoted the previous offensive coordinator, Tim Beck, to a lesser role.
Texas will look to end the season on a high note on Tuesday night against No. 11 ranked Utah in the Alamo Bowl.
