That was just one of the prominent signs of similar sentiments directed at Longhorns QB Major Applewhite that often appeared in the stands at Texas home games from 1998 to 2001. Now Major’s coming back as a running backs (huh?) coach. He did so well as offensive coordinator at Rice that I’d have supposed he’d want to try another year of his luck with the Crimson Tide’s offense before coming home to Austin. But the daily’s Kirk Bohls says (sort of) that the skinny guy with the funny name–whose popularity with alumni is second only to Vince–was just ready to return.
