Danny Akers, the son of former Texas head football coach Fred Akers and a former Longhorn quarterback himself, has died of cancer after a four-year fight with Stage 4 renal cell carcinoma.
He was 54.
“It’s just a heart-breaker,” Fred Akers said Monday night.
Akers is survived by three children: Alix, Hunter and Danielle. Funeral services are pending.
