Posted February 19th, 2016


Former Texas football assistant coach Hardee McCrary is returning to the staff in a newly created role as high school relations director.

According to a press release, McCrary will schedule practice visits, oversee Texas’ annual high school football coaches clinic, and develop relationships with high school coaches.

He’ll start on Monday.


McCrary has spent the past 11 years as the associate director of development in the Longhorn Foundation. Before then, he coached defensive ends at Texas from 1998 to 2003.

“I’m extremely excited and proud to be working with Mike Perrin, Coach (Charlie) Strong, all of our sports programs and the entire athletic department in this effort to provide a resource to high school coaches,” McCrary said in a statement. “I’ve always been very proud of my roots as a Texas high school football player and coach. High school sports were my first love, my children were very active high school student-athletes, and it’s something my family and I still really enjoy being a part of. I’m thrilled to be able to be an ambassador to the high schools for this great university and athletic department.”
