Texas Paying Vince Young Six-Figures, Gives Few Details About His Job

Videos by OutKick

Former Longhorns quarterback Vince Young is getting paid $100,000 annually to be an assistant. The contract doesn’t give any details as to what he’ll be assisting, so it sounds like he’s Netflix’s Lucifer of college football.

One thing Texas knows about Vince Young is that he’ll be worshipped by the fan base, just like Reggie Bush at USC. Fans always have a soft spot for dominant college players.

The only detail in the deal says that Young will report to athletic director Chris Del Conte, so we’ll have to wait and see how this plays out. Regardless, Vince will likely face no backlash if Texas stinks, which is probably part of the reason Young didn’t want a job title in the first place.

So while we’re driving through an hour of traffic for our 9-5 gigs, Vince will be popping in and out of the facility as he pleases for a smooth 100K. Maybe it does pay to be a college football player?

  1. Well, he got a $200,000+ education if he took advantage of it. That includes tuition, upgraded living facilities, upgraded cafeteria with nutritionists on board, free tutors at your service. People looking out for your best interests at all times. That should be all the payment these athletes require.

  2. Texas did the same thing with Earl Campbell. Good on them for bringing their legends back into the fold. Young’s job may be nothing more than show up and be seen, but it shows they take care of their greatest players who are having a struggle making it in the real world.

  3. Giving the University of Texas a national championship means you will have lifetime employment in Texas. He’s the greatest football player in Longhorn history; it will be great for him to be around the program.
