Reports began to surface on Sunday evening that Texas would not be retaining wide receivers coach Andre Coleman.

Of the two coaches that were retained from Tom Herman’s previous staff, neither will be with the program for the 2022 season. Running backs coach Stan Drayton accepted the head coach job at Temple, and Steve Sarkisian is now choosing to part ways with Coleman.

It wasn’t surprising news to some, as it was clear that Texas needed a more established recruiter at that particular position group moving forward. The player development on the field wasn’t enough to balance out the recruiting struggles.

The Longhorns have only signed one wide receiver in the 2022 class, four-star Brenen Thompson. Texas missed out on five-star wide receiver Evan Stewart, which could very well have been the straw that broke the camel’s back in terms of Coleman’s future in Austin.

Shortly after reports surfaced of Coleman no longer being a part of the staff, players and fans expressed their thoughts and well wishes via social media.
