Darrell Wyatt linked to Texas?

December 30, 2010


KU wide receivers coach Darrell Wyatt, who also serves as the Jayhawks’ co-offensive coordinator, has been linked to a similar vacancy at the University of Texas on various Internet message boards for the past few weeks. However, sources close to the Journal-World said Wednesday that Wyatt had not been contacted by Texas.

A potential Wyatt-to-Texas scenario picked up steam Tuesday, when word spread that UT receivers coach Bobby Kennedy was headed to Colorado to coach the Buffs’ receivers under new CU coach Jon Embree. Kennedy coached at Texas for seven years and is a native of Boulder, Colo.

Including the one vacated by defensive coordinator Will Muschamp, UT’s former head-coach-in-waiting who left to take the head coaching job at Florida, Texas coach Mack Brown has five openings to fill on his coaching staff.

I appreciate your comments but thought I should point out that this is a potentially huge story that is getting a lot of run down in Texas.

Some media outlets are reporting that it's a done deal and, of course, there are hundreds of posts about it on dozens of message boards. That makes it news.

It's not in the same family as the announcement of a new athletic director or the firing of a coach, but in this 24-hour-a-day news cycle we live in, these reports are worth a mention and that's why we had the note. You get a tip, you make a few calls and you verify what you can. Nothing more, nothing less.

I don't know if coach Wyatt will end up at Texas or not but either way, it's my job to cover KU football inside and out, bottom to top and that's what I'm doing.

Have a great day!!!

Don't pay any attention to #1G Matt. She'd be the first one on here bitc#ing if we lost Wyatt to Texas. Especially since that's his recruiting territory.

Meant to add that she'd be the first to complain if he left and you didn't have anything mentioning the possibility.
