Former Thorpe Award winner Huff a member of Herman's Texas staff
Texas' 2005 Jim Thorpe Award winner is now a member of the coaching staff as a quality control coach.
A Texas spokesperson has confirmed to Horns247 that former Longhorn All-American defensive back Michael Huff is a member of the current coaching staff as a quality control coach.
The spokesperson said Huff, the 2005 Jim Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back, was added to the staff of former head coach Charlie Strong during the 2016 season as a quality control coach. Huff, who has been on the road making visits with new head coach Tom Herman, is said to be in the same role under the current regime.
Huff attended the in-home visit Herman made Wednesday night with five-star offensive tackle Walker Little.
He also accompanied Oscar Giles to school visits in Houston on Thursday, which included a stop at Houston Heights (formerly Houston Reagan).
A product of Irving Nimitz who signed with Texas in 2001, Huff was a Freshman All-American in 2002. Huff closed out his Longhorn career with unanimous All-American honors as a member of Texas’ BCS national championship team in 2005.
The seventh overall pick by the Oakland Raiders in the 2006 NFL Draft, Huff played eight NFL seasons for the Raiders, Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos. It was with the Broncos where Huff played his final season in 2013, with his final game being a loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII.
