You member when Rodney
TERRY coached at FSU? He just secured himself 5 years at Texas. Good for him.
He earned it. Crazy path, too. Fresno St to UTEP and ends up at Texas.
Did an amazing job under trying circumstances - good for him.
Yes, he's done a hell of a job this year keeping it together, (particularly with a former Aggie on the team). But he stepped into Chris Beard's team. Overall career not impressive at all, save for one year at Fresno St. I don't think he lasts the five years of his contract.

I hope that leading a big time program brings him better success than he's had at other schools. We shall see.
It's his program now.
I like him but not sure that he is the right person for Texas.
I wonder if more coaches will follow his path by leaving head positions at mid major schools like UTEP with no $$ or fan interest and take assistant positions at power 5 programs. If he had stayed with UTEP as head coach he probably gets fired and has a much different career trajectory right now
@lobosergei I know you did not mean it this way but I had to chuckle thinking that one gets an assistant head coach job at a big school and then you try to get the head coach fired. 🙂
Good for him. I am also not sure that he is the guy but he has his chance.
It will be interesting to see what he does with much bigger resources. His teams always seem to play hard and play pretty good defense. At Fresno they seemed to lack offensive continuity at times. It's a whole new ball game though with Big resources. He obviously faced the fire for the entirety of the conference season and came out in good shape, so if that's an indication he might just do okay. Hoping he does great.
If he doesn't, he still gets paid enough to settle himself for life. Good for him, he did do a good job with the Horns this season.
