Texas AD Chris Del Conte: Athletes Should Be Unified During 'The Eyes of Texas'

Texas Athletic Director Chris Del Conte wrote a letter to fans detailing how Longhorns athletes are expected to remain on the field during the playing of "The Eyes of Texas," according to the Austin American-Statesman's Brian Davis.

The topic arose after players left for the locker room prior to the Texas band playing the song at the end of games.

Davis shared a portion of Del Conte's letter to fans and donors:
