Some sad news out of Austin this morning, As
University of Texas coaching legend Darrell Royal passed away at the age of 88.
Royal is Texas' all-time winningest coach and brought 3 national championships to the 40 acres, as well as being credited as an innovator of the wishbone offense in college football. On Saturday when Texas hosts Iowa State in a stadium named for the coaching legend, they will honor him by starting the game in the wishbone formation and wear "DKR" decals on their helmets. Former Texas Tech Head coach Spike Dykes coached on Royal's staff at Texas from 1972-1976.
