Texas Longhorns Make Unexpected Coaching Change
The Texans Longhorns made an unexpected coaching change this week.
Oklahoma special teams coordinator Jay Boulware is reportedly a leading contender to become Texas’ new special teams coordinator.
According to Anwar Richardson, if a deal is ultimately made, Boulware would also serve as the program’s tight ends coach.
Boulware is a Texas alum who played offensive tackle for the school until 1992. From there he went into coaching and spent three years as a grad assistant and tight ends coach wit the Longhorns.

Over the course of his career, Boulware has spent time at Arizona, Stanford, Utah, Iowa State, Auburn and Oklahoma. Most of his experience comes in the areas of special teams and tight ends.
Barring something crazy happening to wreck this deal, an official announcement should be made in the coming days.
The Longhorns went an underwhelming 8-5 this past season, but did end the year with two consecutive victories.
