Texas Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian understands he’s dealing with a young squad.
He’s made that clear in recent press conference comments, per 247Sports.
“Not only are we relatively young at quarterback, we’re a relatively young team,” Sarkisian said, according to 247Sports. “We’ve got to do a really good job as a staff of trying to put our players in a position to learn from the tough situations. We try to do that in practice, we try to do that and scrimmages. We’ll spot the ball on our own 1-yard line: How are you going to play in your own end zone? We’re going to put them in situations where it’s a potential four-down territory, where it’s third down and play yourself into fourth down. I don’t expect them to get it exactly right the first time, but as many of those situations as I can put him in and our team in, hopefully, the better we respond in-game when they present themselves.”

- Sarkisian says Texas’ depth chart will come into its own once the season starts.
A UT official says Texas football coach Steve Sarkisian will not provide a depth chart before the season opener this week. In addition, Sarkisian is not expected to provide a depth chart at all this season. Clearly, things could change but that's Sarkisian's plan right now.— Anwar Richardson (@AnwarRichardson) August 29, 2022
