    Well, this was not entirely unexpected. I wish Greg Davis the best, but it was time for him to move on. Now the Longhorns can go out and get themselves a Will Muschamp-class offensive coordinator. Supposedly no one is likely to be announced until after the bowl game season is over.

    Alot of happy UT football fans right now. I think its time to bring in some new blood. Who gets the OC duties?

    I doubt he gets the job. He doesn't have the resume yet.

    I think Mack wants to end on a high note and is looking to make a splash hire like he did with Chizik and Muschamp. The rumor is that they were looking at Dana Holgorson from UH/OSU and found some character issues.

    I think Major's next in line after the Muschamp takes over and the new OC moves on.

    lol so you think Major should become OC, but you dont know if he still coaches there? Sorry, but that was funny.

    I think most agree that he is a possible OC.

    Yeah, but he would solely focus on his high powered offensive. I think his version of slinging the ball around would fit well the spread offensive players that are already there. He would be a MAJOR coup in my mind.

    And yeah, there are some character issues, but let's be honest, UT players are not exactly devoid of character issues...

    People keep saying this but wasn't he the OC at Bama? Besides, what better program to give him his shot than his alma mater? He was always a heady player; he had to be b/c he wasn't blowing anyone away with his talent & i think if given the opportunity, he'd flourish. He's one of the few players at UT i did like.

    There's definitely a case to be made for him.

    He did a good job at Rice, but Bama didn't work out so well for him. Not really sure what happened, but I know Saban ran him off and now his name is mud over there.

    Not to mention, working for Greg Davis for 2 years doesn't help his cause either.

    He was OC in name only. Saban totally ran that show and didn't let Major do much, which is why Major took off and took a job as a position assistant.

    Whoever they decide to hire, I want them to get back to running the damn ball. This is freaking Texas.....that school should be churning out NFL RBs they way schools like Auburn and Oregon have been. The biggest disservice they did to Colt McCoy was not giving him a legit running back after Jamaal Charles bolted.

    I want them to pick someone up who's going to build a big SEC type offensive line and I want to start seeing them beat people up on offense again.

    They should hire Kubiak as OC. I'm sure he can turn Gilbert into a decent QB. Maybe Fozzy can master the halfback pass.

    The name I'm hearing the most at the moment is Brian Harsin from Boise State. Muschamp wants an offense that can spread you out and play catch up, or run the rock and play ball control.
