The Texas Longhorns move to join the SEC in 2024 hasn’t sat well with some of college football’s existing legion of head coaches. That includes Houston Cougars head coach Dana Holgorson, who is leading the Cougars into Power Five action this offseason.

“Screw them,” Holgorson said, referring to Texas’ role in leaving Houston for dead following the Southwest Conference’s collapse, per Inside Texas. “They can go wherever they want. They don’t want us and we don’t want them.”

Notably, Holgorson’s no stranger to the Big 12. Before joining Houston, he was head coach for the West Virginia Mountaineers.
