Help wanted: Texas seeks interns and walk-ons for football program

Posted January 25th, 2017


Following his hire as Texas’ football coach, Tom Herman handed out slices of pizza to students. A few weeks later, he’s offering jobs and jerseys.

Texas has advertised that the football program is on the lookout for interns and walk-on players. Experience with high school football is preferred for both the interns and walk-ons, although computer skills will be needed for the former. An information session for the walk-on candidates will be held on Jan. 31.

Interested students are encouraged to contact Jordan Traylor, who serves as a graduate assistant in the football program.
