Texas Longhorns defensive coordinator Chris Ash is out on the Forty Acres. But much to his benefit, he’s in with newly hired Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer as a position coach, Yahoo Sports reports. Ash was Meyer’s defensive coordinator in 2014, the last time the former Ohio State Buckeyes coach won a national championship at the college level.

Think that’s weird? Yahoo Sports is also reporting that former Texas head coach and, most recently, fired South Florida Bulls head coach Charlie Strong will also join Meyer in the Jacksonville as an assistant head coach; Strong will also likely coach linebackers.

NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • Texas softball star pitcher Miranda Elish is opting out of the 2021 season over ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple outlets report. Elish previously stated she planned to return as a fifth-year senior after the pandemic forced 2020’s cancelation. “After all my years of playing the game I love, this message comes with deep sadness and a very heavy heart,” Elish said in a statement released through the Texas athletic department. “It was a decision that I’ve thought long and hard about, and unfortunately due to situations surrounding me, I feel it is in my best interest to not participate in the 2021 season because of my concerns over Covid-19.” Chalk that up as a major loss for the Longhorns.
