For the 2019 season, the Texas Longhorns coaching staff will remain intact, according to a report from Anwar Richardson of Orangebloods:
Texas' Tom Herman met with his coaches last week to discuss their futures at Texas and informed each one he intends to retain them, according to sources. That means Stan Drayton, Drew Mehringer, Derek Warehime, Oscar Giles, Jason Washington, Craig Naivar & Corby Meekins are safe— Anwar Richardson (@AnwarRichardson) January 9, 2019
The assistants named by Richardson — running backs coach Stan Drayton, wide receivers coach Drew Mehringer, wide receivers coach Corby Meekins, tight ends coach Derek Warehime, defensive line coach Oscar Giles, cornerbacks coach Jason Washington, and safeties coach Crag Naivar — were all working on two-year contacts that will expire at the end of March.
So there was some speculation about whether all of them would be retained, particularly since Herman’s old friend David Beaty, the former Kansas head coach, is still on the market and could valuable recruiting expertise in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
However, it appears that Herman does not believe the issues recruiting that area are enough to force changes to his coaching staff, though it is perhaps still possible that Herman could choose to re-assign an assistant to make room for Beaty on the staff.
Offensive coordinator Tim Beck’s contract runs through the 2019 season, while defensive coordinator Todd Orlando signed a three-year extension last year. Co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Herb Hand also signed a three-year contract when he was hired in early 2018.
