Report: USC OC Graham Harrell interested in Texas job

Eleven years after destroying the national championship hopes of the Texas Longhorns with a legendary pass to Michael Crabtree, former Texas Tech Red Raiders quarterback Graham Harrell could quickly become the presumed savior for the Longhorns offense.

Following the reassignment of Texas offensive coordinator Tim Beck on Sunday — Beck will remain the quarterbacks coach for the bowl game — reports surfaced linking Harrell to the Texas job as a top candidate to replace Beck. Currently the offensive coordinator at USC, Harrell’s future in Los Angeles is in question because the current Trojans head coach, Clay Helton, may be on the way out.
