On Sunday, Longhorns coaching staff left defense coordinator Todd Orlando and two receiver coaches Drew Mehringer and Corby Meekins. They all worked in Texas for the past three years. The team completed this regular season with a result of 7-5.

“These were difficult decisions and we by no means blame the coaches for all the failures of this season,” team head coach Tom Herman told the press. “But we definitely need a fresh look at some aspects of the game, an influx of fresh ideas for further growth.”

Tim Beck, the former coordinator of the attack, also received a new position. Now he will be working with quarterbacks.

“I am very disappointed with our work this season. Seven victories cannot be a satisfactory result in Texas and I take full responsibility for all our shortcomings. In this regard, we carried out several permutations in the coaching staff and will be preparing for the bowl. Also among our tasks is the successful completion of the signing period for newcomers, ”added Herman.

The duties of the defense coordinator will be temporarily performed by the safety trainer Craig Naivar. Transitional assistant coaches will be analysts Andre Coleman and Jeremiah George.

According to sources, former Rutgers coach Chris Ash, who worked with Herman in the 2014 Ohio State Championship team, will claim the post of Longhorn defense coordinator next season. Candidates for the place of the attack coordinator are former trainer of Arkansas and UCL Chad Morris, as well as coordinator of the LSU pass game Joe Brady.
