A week that saw Longhorns coach Tom Herman flip the double bird was capped by an even more surprising hand sign — former Sooners coach Barry Switzer flashing a Hook ‘Em.
Switzer tweeted a selfie Friday night showing the smiling coach proudly giving a “Horns up” along with Francisco De Soto, who Switzer said was a UT mechanical engineering grad from El Paso. Switzer said De Soto had stopped to help him change a tire on Interstate 40.
Why would I smile and do “Horns Up”? A University of Texas graduate helping me change a blowout on I-40 in 5 pm trafffic! His name Francisco De Soto, 37-year-old mechanical engineer, from El Paso, Texas. Francisco had no idea who he was helping! @UTAustin #mechanicalengineering pic.twitter.com/iwRMFXDmV8
