Texas assistant coach Corby Meekins moves to wide receiver duty

The Texas Longhorns moved assistant coach Corby Meekins from tight ends to receivers, according to Danny Davis of the Austin-American Statesman. 

Meekins followed Tom Herman from Houston as tight ends coach after being on the Cougars’ staff from 2015-16. He’ll assist Drew Mehringer with the receivers and also have an expanded role on special teams, according to Davis. Derek Warehime took over the tight end job after moving over from the offensive line once new OL coach Herb Hand arrived in Austin.

The change in Meekins’ position has yet to be noted on Texas’ official website.

Texas didn’t have much production out of its tight ends last season, although the offense as a whole wasn’t outstanding, either. The switch to Warehime and the reshuffling could help rejuvenate the Longhorns, along with a typically outstanding Texas recruiting class.
