After reports surfaced that he was exploring NFL options, Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Texas Longhorns running game coordinator and running backs coach Stan Drayton is expected to return to Texas for the 2020 season.

Drayton came to Texas in 2017 when Tom Herman took over the program, after spending two seasons with the Chicago Bears in the same position. In the college ranks, Drayton served as the running backs coach for Urban Meyer on two National Championship teams. At Texas, Drayton played a major part in recruiting Keaontay Ingram, Derrian Brown and Bijan Robinson, the top running back signed in the Big 12 for the last three recruiting cycles.

With the recent coaching announcements, only two open spots on the Texas coaching staff, presumably the tight ends and defensive tackle positions.
