So this post has nothing to do with any UT sports, this is just me being proud of my daughter. She just got accepted into UT pharmacy school. Sorry for going off topic, but I had to brag a little. Bac

Didn't know where to put this, but here ya go. Looks like Derrian Brown on the road to recovery and at the least he could have a normal life!

Ranking the Best Hires This Offseason

 

1. Steve Sarkisian, Texas Longhorns

9 OF 9

In the what-have-you-done-for-me-lately world of college football, teams normally go after the hottest name when they shouldn't. It doesn't always wind up being the best pick.

Texas hopes its second swing at the buzzy name is better than its last one.

Tom Herman didn't live up to the massive expectations in Austin, and his tenure with the Longhorns came to an unceremonious end in January. Apparently, the burnt orange boosters believed Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian was too good to pass up.

He probably was.

Few more brilliant offensive minds exist in the sport than Sark, who led the incredible Alabama offense in 2020 on its way to a national championship. That prompted a return to a head coaching role for the first time since USC fired him in 2015 following reports from staff and players that he was intoxicated at practices and at least one game.

Much like his buddy Lane Kiffin, Sark's career needed a jump-start, and Nick Saban provided the opportunity. This isn't Sark's first foray into a high-stress situation. He was the Trojans head coach for a year-plus, going 12-6, after posting a 34-29 record in five years at Washington.

That is no guarantee Sark will be successful, but his offense should translate in Austin with Texas' resources, the recruiting hotbed and some of the players in place. It's obvious this hire has the highest ceiling of any in college football.

Texas hopes you get what you pay for.
