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.
