The dead period ended and the Texas Longhorns didn't have a tight ends/special teams coach in place, but with National Signing Day approaching, reports emerged on Tuesday evening that Cedar Hill head coach Joey McGuire has an offer to take the position.
Things were remarkably quiet on that front since the coaches convention several weeks ago, but Orangebloods was first to report the connection of McGuire's name to the job before Horns247 went so far as to report the job offer.
An immensely successful head coach with three state championships at Cedar Hill, McGuire is seemingly a home-run hire at the position due to his ties in the Metroplex.
The potential hold up, according to both reports?
His son is a quarterback on the team, and sources indicate he'd like to see him all the way through his senior season. McGuire has already been offered two assistant positions from other programs this offseason, but he turned both down.
Will the Longhorns overcome that hurdle to convince McGuire to move up to the next level, where his obvious coaching acumen and potential as a recruiter could quickly make him a rising star in the collegiate ranks?
That scenario speaks for itself.
And if it happens, there's no question that McGuire could help bring his former star wide receiver DaMarkus Lodge with him to Austin.
