Default Vince Young says he has a job at Texas if NFL career is over

Vince Young says he has a job at Texas if NFL career is over; LINK

Quote:
Almost 10 years removed from Rose Bowl MVP honors with the Longhorns, NFL free agent Vince Young said this week that he has a job waiting for him at Texas should his pro career be over.

The position, as described by Young in a report this week from Joseph Duarte of The Houston Chronicle , is an ambassador role that will fulfill several purposes.

“If football doesn’t work out for me, the university has a great job for me,” Young said Wednesday at the Touchdown Club of Houston luncheon featuring new UT coach Charlie Strong. “Just letting you know what (UT) has going on, especially helping kids get scholarships and recognizing things like that. Whatever it is, I just want to support the university.”

So a guy who can barely read...will be telling kids about...SCHOLARSHIPS!? Yeah and then a guy with hair down to his butt will be conducting a "coping with baldness" support group. A 500 pound gent will give us weight loss tips and a meth head will give us tips on sobriety.

I hope he makes enough to spend $100k on his dinners at The Cheesecake Factory and $1M on his own stupid bday party. Dude is a complete loser.

If anything, Young should be able to use his platform to preach to scholarship athletes about taking advantage of the opportunity to receive a free college education.

I think Joe Jamail just funded a "Vince Young" chair. He can afford it.

Texas owes him a job. If they didn't pay him while he was playing there then it's time to pony up.

If UT's QBs are as bad as I've heard from their spring practice, they could use him out on the field...

This!

Can you think of a better guy to tell kids they should take full advantage of their scholarship opportunities than one who basically blew his chance to get his degree and had his NFL career end badly?

Who better to explain how hot the stove is than one who's been burned?

Actually, he has his degree so not sure what you mean there.

But honestly the amount of hatred that seems to boil around here for the guy is a bit on the extreme side. All I can say is I wish him well. Guy had his issues but overall has never been a bad guy and gave back to his community which is more than some do.

Thanks for the update. And I suppose I should have verified what I'd heard before I posted that he hadn't graduated.
And I don't hate Vince. Hell, for a while, I thought he was going to be somebody the Texans would have to contend with.
