Texas football coach Mack Brown is on the cusp of announcing his first step toward restructuring his football staff, which currently has five vacancies.
A source with knowledge of the situation said today that Brown is poised to hire Kansas receivers coach Darrell Wyatt as the Longhorns’ new receivers coach, replacing the departed Bobby Kennedy. An announcement could come later today.
Wyatt also holds the title of co-offensive coordinator at Kansas, where offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Chuck Long was the Jayhawks’ play caller during the 2010 season. Wyatt has a reputation as a strong recruiter and has worked at four different Big 12 schools, including a four-year stint at Oklahoma (2002-2005), where he was instrumental in the recruitment of running back Adrian Peterson.
Wyatt’s coaching stops in the Big 12 include two different stints at Kansas (1997-2000 and 2010). He’s also coached at Baylor (1996), Oklahoma State (2001) and OU (2002-2005). Wyatt spent the 2006 season as an assistant coach with the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings.
