Darrell K. Royal, icon of University of Texas football, has passed at 88.
I am sad to learn that former UT football coach, Darrell Royal, has gone on to his reward, but as I said to CoWorker Kristi - "It's kind of hard to imagine living a better life than that guy".
Longhorn Football fans know that Royal brought three championships to Texas and had a 167-47-5 record at UT. Memorial Stadium is actually now Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium, and has been for quite a while.
He remained active in UT Athletics and the University of Texas, and was on the field for a coin toss just a few weeks back. He'll be missed, but in Austin, it is impossible to believe he'll be forgotten.
