Texas Longhorns legend and national championship-winning quarterback alum Vince Young has joined the Forty Acres’ athletic department as a special assistant. It’s unclear what, exactly, he’ll do. But it is clear that Young is back on campus as a Longhorn.
Texas forever, as they say.
I see everyone is hearing the news that CDC has me working for our Longhorns. So happy to be able to help him out as well as everyone in the Athletic Department, share my knowledge and experiences, reach out in the community and serve the school I love! You know I Bleed Orange!— Vince Young (@VinceYoung10) February 2, 2021
