Longhorn Legend Ken Dabbs passes away

The former Texas coach, recruiting coordinator and administrator passed away Wednesday night.

Longtime Longhorn Sports Information Director, Bill Little, remembers the beloved story teller.

It will take all of the angels and archangels — and probably those gathered both above and below — to listen to the stories of Ken Dabbs.

And oh, how we wish we could hear them one more time.

Ken Dabbs died Wednesday night, a conqueror of more than 84 years of living and a victim of a prolonged battle with cancer and other maladies. He had gone home, home from the hospitals and rehab facilities, at last at peace, celebrating a life well-lived and honored by more friends than a young boy born in the post-World War II era in the tiny town of Freer could have ever imagined.
