Longhorn Football Future?

From the Houston Chonicle:

Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp has been named head football coach-in-waiting to eventually replace Mack Brown at the University of Texas, athletic director DeLoss Dodds said Tuesday.

"We have decided to build our future from the inside," Dodds said.

Dodds said Muschamp will make $900,000 annually beginning Jan. 1 and contract details will be finalized at a later date.

"We’re looking at our future, and he will be our future," Dodds said.

Not sure I like what this portends.

Being an SEC-er, I know all about Will Muschamp (from his Auburn days). He was rumored, though I doubted it at the time, to be on the short-list for my Hogs when Nutt left last year. I love the guy. Not all coordinators make good head coaches, but he is one that I would be willing to take that chance with.

I think this was done not because Mack is soon to retire, but to make sure Will sticks around until he does.

I'm calming down a bit. How bereft of meaning is my life when the announcement made me feel physically ill? That's an exaggeration but not by much.
