Football Scoop reports that former Louisville co-OC Lonnie Galloway will be joining Mack Brown's staff at North Carolina.

Galloway's tenure at Louisville was eventful to say the least, as he was issued a one-game suspension during the 2016 season after it was found that he initiated contact with a former Wake Forest announcer in order to receive information on the Demon Deacons' game plan ahead of a game between the two teams. While his time at Louisville wasn't as successful as hoped, Galloway does have significant connections to the state of North Carolina as he played at Western Carolina and held coaching jobs at multiple in-state schools.

Texas freshman S Caden Sterns (knee) will not have to undergo surgery.

Sterns (6'0/205) injured his knee late in the second quarter of the Big 12 Championship Game and was unable to subsequently return to the contest. An MRI after that game revealed no structural damage. At this juncture, the expectation is that the budding star will be able to play against Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. Sterns wrapped the regular season having registered 62 tackles, four passes defended and a whopping four interceptions while appearing in all 13 of Texas' games.
Dec 4 - 3:07 PM

Texas junior WR Collin Johnson caught eight balls for 177 yards and a score in Saturday's 39-27 Big 12 Championship Game loss to Oklahoma.

With the performance, Johnson (6'6/220) has put himself into a position to log his first career 1,000-yard receiving season. He's posted a 65-945-7 line through 12 games (he missed the Texas Tech game with a knee injury suffered in practice). The true junior is going to have a difficult decision regarding his future after the season. "Johnson doesn't receive nearly enough love for how talented he is," The Athletic's Dane Brugler tweeted during the game. "Legit NFL prospect, not just because of his size, but because of his tempo and ball skills."

Texas junior S Brandon Jones is leaning towards returning to the Longhorns for the 2019 season.

Jones (6'0/205) is draft eligible and he doesn't have to make a decision yet, but the junior looks like he wants to develop for one more season before heading to the draft. Let's see if he confirms his decision after the Longhorns bowl game. Entering the Big 12 Championship game, Jones had 59 total tackles and one interception on the season.
Dec 1 - 4:56 PM

Texas sophomore QB Sam Ehlinger completed 23-of-36 passes for 349 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 39-27 Big 12 Championship Game loss to Oklahoma.

He also ran for 42 yards and two scores. Ehlinger (6'3/225) re-aggravated a sprained AC joint in his shoulder two weeks ago against Iowa State. He's mostly looked fine in playing through it the past few weeks, but his game Saturday was a bit up-and-down. Ehlinger made a few incredible throws -- zipping balls over OU corners at a height disadvantage into the hands of his enormous receivers -- but he also missed a few open potential touchdown throws. After the game, Ehlinger channeled Tim Tebow in saying he's going to "make it my mission to make sure this team and this school never have this feeling again." Texas may be headed to the Sugar Bowl if Oklahoma is selected into the playoff.
Dec 1 - 4:54 PM

Texas junior WR Lil'Jordan Humphrey caught seven passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 39-27 Big 12 Championship Game loss to Oklahoma.

Humphrey (6'4/225) also appeared to have a kick return touchdown in the fourth quarter that would have pulled UT within six pending the extra point, but it was called back on a holding call. Humphrey gets overlooked sometimes, but we're big fans of his work. For a player his size, he's unique, with the athleticism to play slot WR and return kicks.
Dec 1 - 4:45 PM

Texas freshman S Caden Sterns (knee) has been ruled out for the remained of Saturday's game against Oklahoma due to a right knee injury.

Sterns has been out of the lineup since late in the second quarter, with trainers taking him to the locker room just before halftime. As a result of the freshman safety's injury, BJ Foster will continue to man the safety position left vacant by Sterns. Sterns entered Saturday with 59 total tackles and four interceptions, earning first team All-Big 12 honors.
Dec 1 - 2:47 PM

Texas freshman S Caden Sterns (knee) is questionable to return to Saturday's game against Oklahoma due to an apparent knee injury.

Sterns suffered the injury late in the second quarter and remained in the locker room for further evaluation at the start of the second half. BJ Foster has replaced the freshman, who has been one of Texas' best defensive players this season, in the lineup as a result of the injury.
Dec 1 - 2:35 PM

Texas freshman S Caden Sterns (undisclosed) limped off the field late in the second quarter of Saturday's game against Oklahoma.

Sterns' specific injury is unknown at this time, but if he were unable to return that would be a major hit to the Texas secondary. The freshman, who was taken to the locker room just before halftime, entered Saturday with 59 total tackles, four interceptions and three tackles for loss. BJ Foster becomes an even more important piece for the Longhorns if Sterns is unable to return.
Dec 1 - 1:56 PM

Texas sophomore QB Sam Ehlinger (shoulder) is expected to be a full-go for Saturday's Big 12 Championship Game showdown with Oklahoma.

No real surprise on this one, as Ehlinger came back from a shoulder injury to throw for 154 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions against Kansas on Black Friday. Shane Buechele will be waiting in the wings should Ehlinger run into further issues on the health front.
Nov 29 - 7:47 PM

Texas has brought on former Kansas HC David Beaty to serve as a consultant for this week's Big 12 title game against Oklahoma.

Texas head coach Tom Herman is old friends with Beaty going back to the 2008 season at Rice under David Bailiff, when Herman was the OC and Beaty coached wide receivers. This one-week arrangement could conceivably turn into a longer-term gig for Beaty. One of Beaty's great calling cards as a coach is the ability to recruit in the Dallas Metroxplex, where he was once a high school coach. Beaty was terminated by Kansas earlier this month after serving as head coach for four years. He was allowed to coach out the season. In the finale on Saturday, Beaty's last game at KU, Herman's Longhorns beat the Jayhawks 24-17 in Lawrence.
Nov 26 - 2:11 PM

Texas senior LB Gary Johnson is expected to be available for the Big 12 Championship Game after serving a one-game suspension.

Johnson entered this week as Texas' leader in tackles, so his absence was noticeable in the Longhorns' 24-17 win over Kansas. The senior linebacker being available for the Big 12 title game would be welcome news for the Longhorns, as they'll be taking on a yet to be determined team that will have more offensive talent than the Jayhawks.
Nov 23 - 5:11 PM

Texas redshirt senior RB Tre Watson ran for 79 yards on 14 carries in a 24-17 victory over Kansas on Friday.

This was an ugly offensive football game, but Watson was able to make the most of his touches in this one. He also had two catches for 11 yards, and he helped set up Same Ehlinger's two passing touchdowns and rushing score. Watson has received 14-plus carries in the last four games, and he'll likely get around that again in the Big 12 title game against either Oklahoma or West Virginia.
Nov 23 - 3:54 PM

Texas sophomore QB Sam Ehlinger completed 16-of-28 passes for 154 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions and ran for a score in a 24-17 victory over Kansas on Friday.

The win clinches an appearances in the Big 12 title game for the Longhorns. Ehlinger (6'3/235) started out red-hot against the Jayhawks, and threw a beautiful touchdown pass to Colin Johnson to open the scoring. After that, it was a bit of a mixed bag for the signal-caller, and it's possible the shoulder injury was bothering him more than he let on. It won't be his signature performance, but it was good enough. A contest with either Oklahoma or West Virginia comes next for the Longhorns, and the winner will take home the Big 12 title.
Nov 23 - 3:51 PM

Texas junior S Brandon Jones will miss the rest of Friday's game against Kansas with a head injury.

Jones was hit directly in the middle of his helmet by Jayhawks safety Emmanuel Moore while the safety was attempting to return a punt. There's no word yet if he suffered a concussion, but we do know that he will not return Friday.
