Former Texas quarterback Vince Young has accepted a six-figure job in UT's Division of Diversity and Community Engagement, sources told HornsDigest.com Wednesday.

Texas is expected to announce on Thursday the new post in Texas' Division of Diversity and Community Engagement, sources told HornsDigest. 

The 2005 national championship quarterback for the Longhorns will be working with first-generation college students, the sources said. 

Young, who received his bachelor's degree in applied learning and development from Texas in 2013, has said he was the first member of his family to receive his college degree.

The sources said Young's role at the university could also include fund-raising and other responsibilities, but that his primary role will be working in the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement.

The job pays "six figures," one source said. 

Young became a UT legend after helping lead Texas to a dramatic 41-38 victory overUSC for the BCS national title in which he ran for 200 yards and 3 touchdowns while completing 30 of 40 passes for 267 yards.

He was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans, where he went 31-19 as a starter but was released after five seasons. Young spent one final season with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011 before his NFL career essentially came to an end.

By the end of his NFL career, Young earned a reputation as a hard-to-coach, lavish spender who burned through more than $20 million, according to reports.

UT sources say Young's life changed when he earned his degree at Texas in 2013 and that his new position is "a perfect fit for him" based on his education and life experiences.

Maybe we can sneak him on to the field in the #18 jersey, he's about the same size as Swoopes right?!

official UT press release

 

very very savvy move by the DDCE. VY moving to a academic unit means that the division will be able to make connections with athletic donors who in turn might be interested in financially supporting the initiatives VY is stumping for. 

 

very smart move by UT to not just bring him in an athletic capacity. i've met dr. vincent, and i'm not surprised that he thought this up. he struck me as an incredibly sharp guy.
