Pat Fitzgerald made trip to Texas University, but not for interview

On Tuesday, Northwestern head coach, Pat Fitzgerald, made a trip to the University of Texas. However, it was not for an interview to be he team’s new head coach.

According to ESPN,

Fitzgerald and five members of his coaching staff attended the Longhorns’ bowl practice and watched film, but sources close to the situation said it was a typical visit for a coach whose team isn’t preparing for a bowl game. Fitzgerald said in a text to ESPN.com that it was a “standard drop in.”

With Mack Brown’s recent decision to resign as head coach of the Longhorns, the University of Texas is looking for its next coach. There are a few names in mind when you think about the top of the list. Those names include Art Briles of Baylor, Charlie Strong of Louisville, and James Franklin of Vanderbilt.

It remains to be seen who will be the next coach of the Texas Longhorns, but a decision should be made within the next couple of weeks leading up to the team’s Alamo Bowl appearance, where Mack Brown will coach his last game with Texas.
