Although multiple media reports suggested that Yurcich’s departure to become Texas’ offensive coordinator was in part because Day wanted to go in a different direction, Day said Wednesday that was not the case. He said Yurcich “did a really good job” in leading Fields’ development over the course of his year with the Buckeyes, but Yurcich ultimately “couldn’t pass up” the offer from Texas, where he is set to make $1.7 million after making $950,000 at Ohio State last season.

“I thought Mike did a great job,” Day said. “We were all in alignment. And he brought great ideas.”

I have to admit, this is a bit of a surprise. Aranda is a defensive guy going to an offensive minded program. Until this year, defense has been an after thought. Obviously, that will now change. But it does look like a change in philosophy has happened in Waco.

 

Might be a reason for Okam to stay in Waco.

Holy moley if we hire Snyder, we could have the best special teams in the country,
 

Snyder’s efforts earned national recognition. He was named the Special Teams Coordinator of the Year in 2015 and 2017 by national college football writer Phil Steele.

The FootballScoop website picked Snyder also picked Snyder as the Special Teams Coordinator of the Year in 2015.

If he was responsible for the success of K State's special teams, he should be able to do wonders with the athletes at UT. That could translate in to at least 1 additional win each year or at least considerable improvement in field position on the offensive side of the ball. He would definitely fit the coach em up on fundamentals part if not the recruiting part.

True, however  he's never been a position coach.

He’d make our ST elite and that alone is worth it. We’d be really hard to beat.

Some think all those years he was special teams coach it was actually his father doing the coaching. Who knows?

Arkansas just got Army’s ST coordinator to come on as a ST analyst. We need to make moves like that

Former NFL DL and recently fired Raiders DL coach Brenston Buckner started following a bunch of Texas staffers and accounts.  Last year as the Raiders DL coach he improved them from 13 sacks the previous season to 32 this past and run defense from 30th to 8th.

I remember that name from the Carolina Panthers. He was on that D-Line with Julius Peppers that was so dominant and lost a Super Bowl.

No idea what he's done since then. But I know he had a good NFL career.
