After much speculation about the status of the "interim" tag attached to Rodney Terry's title with the Texas Basketball Program, the University announced his official hiring as the 26th Head Coach in UT Basketball history on Monday.

The terms of Terry's deal are reported to be $15.3 million for five years. 

Terry took over the reins of the program on December 12th following the arrest of Chris Beard.  He went on to lead the Longhorns to a Big 12 Tournament Championship and the Elite 8 in the NCAA Tournament, the first for the program since 2008.

Previously, Terry was a head coach at Fresno State (2011-2018) and UTEP (2018-2021).  He served as an assistant under Rick Barnes at Texas (2002-2011) and rejoined the Longhorns under Chris Beard.  His career record as a head coach is 185-164.  

Terry had the support of the fans, current and former players. But, as the postseason continued and no deal had been reached, there was concern whether or not Texas Athletic Director Chris Del Conte was bought-in on Terry. 

He was.
