Espn Report : Longhorns head coach under pressure – this is the end for him at Longhorns

Texas HC Steve Sarkisian is under a lot of pressure, but he also has plenty of backing
The Texas Longhorns are always held to great expectations.

Darrell Royal and Mack Brown ensured it with their championship legacies, whereas coaches such as Charlie Strong and Tom Hermann learned the hard way.

However, Steve Sarkisian is doing well thus far. He went 5-7 in year one, 8-5 in year two, and 12-2 last season, earning a spot in the college football playoffs.

Heading into Year 4, Sarkisian and the Longhorns have legitimate national title ambitions. And, while it puts a lot of pressure on a head coach, at a place like Texas, he also has all of the resources he needs to be successful.

In a new interview with Joel Klatt, Sarkisian was asked what the best part of being Texas’ head coach was. After joking about the excellent meals in Austin, he said that it is the extensive support network he has at his disposal.

“What comes out of it is how many people support you, want you to do well, are willing to help in any capacity that they can,” Sarkisian said (via On3). “What that means for high school coaches or the Texas High School Coaches Association. And I feel like I’m their head coach because I coach their children. To our donors, boosters, student body, and other athletes on campus, I simply try to do my best to support everyone.

Sarkisian is doing his best to give back to those around him so that it is a mutually beneficial arrangement, but he understands that the structure of being the Longhorns’ head coach is the most valuable aspect of the position.

“But, in actuality, the nicest part is that everyone is behind me, understanding that we are the flagship program in the state of Texas and the football program here. “We’re on the front lines, and we represent everything that the Texas Longhorns stand for,” Sarkisian added.

If that support structure isn’t enough, maybe $10.3 million will suffice for coach Sark. That’s also a great perk.
