Texas Football: Sam Ehlinger-Mike Yurcich could be a great Big 12 QB-OC duo

The days of Mike Yurcich calling the plays as the offensive coordinator and/or passing game coordinator with the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Ohio State Buckeyes are now done. Yurcich is done calling plays with any school with the acronym “OSU”. Texas football hired Yurcich to be their next offensive coordinator after demoting Tim Beck.

Then Beck wound up taking the offensive coordinator job with head coach Dave Doeren and the NC State Wolfpack instead of sticking with Texas as just the quarterbacks coach.

Yurcich might be one of the most potent hires that head coach Tom Herman made to this Texas Longhorns football staff entering the 2029 offseason.
