This time, it's on special teams.
Casey Horny has joined the Texas Longhorns coaching staff. Prior to this, Horny spent 9 season with the Baylor Bears as the assistant director of football operations, in charge of defensive quality control. Prior to his stint at Baylor, Horny spent time at Texas State as co-defensive coordinator (2007). He also spent time as the defensive backs coach at both Trinity University and Sam Houston State University.
Horny graduated from Texas in 2000, and served as a graduate assistant with Tom Herman under Mack Brown. On paper, this is a good hire for Herman. Special teams has desperately needed special attention for years at Texas, and it appears that Herman knows this. Stay tuned for Herman to hire more QC's as well as a 10th full-time coaching assistant. The measure was passed unanimously by the American Football Coaches Association this morning.
