Three assistant coaches are out at Texas, and both rumor and common sense point to more shakeups on the way for Mack Brown's regime. Chief among the departing will be the Longhorns' offensive coordinator, the beleagured, reviled Greg Davis. Offensive line coach Mac MacWhorter and special teams coordinator Mike Tolleson are retiring, taking the most graceful exit possible after a season to forget in Austin.
Some fun with cherry-picked stats from pertinent units: The 2010 Longhorns ranked 66th nationally in rushing offense, 102nd in scoring offense, and 87th in scoring offense. They were No. 113 in kickoff returns, and boasted the No. 116 turnover margin.
The university has confirmed the departure of all three, but prevailing wisdom suggests replacements won't be named until more personnel become available after the end of bowl season. Scuttlebutt also indicates that wide receivers coach will receive his walking papers, but that hasn't been confirmed.
