Texas fans react to Steve Sarkisian’s social media post Thursday night

Late on Thursday night, Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian posted on social media amid the Alabama head coaching search.

Via Instagram and X (formerly known as Twitter), Sarkisian stated “It’s a great day to be a Longhorn!” around 10:50 p.m. CT. His wife, Loreal, also took to social media to express positive sentiments about Texas.

This all but confirms Sarkisian’s intentions to stay in Austin as the head coach of the Longhorns. According to Horns247, a contract extension and raise is close to being finalized between the two parties.

Texas fans were understandably on pins and needles the last couple days as Sarkisian’s name was continuously linked to the Alabama head coaching search after Nick Saban’s retirement. However, many didn’t believe Sarkisian would be interested in the job after the success he has had building the Texas football program.

Here’s how Longhorns fans digested Sarkisian’s social media update on Thursday evening.
