Reports have been trickling out that Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp will stay with the Longhorns.
Soon after Lane Kiffin left for Southern California, Tennessee tried luring Muschamp to Knoxville. Texas recruiting commits were contacted by UT staff to let them know Muschamp will remain in Austin.
It’s also likely that Texas has increased Muschamp’s salary. He has been making nearly $1 million since 2008 and is now considered one of the best defensive minds in the country. Texas head coach Mack Brown is now on a $5 million-a-year salary, which is the highest for a college coach in America.
