Bus schedule: Former Texas coach Mike Sherman, whose tenure was cut short in the fall of 2016, will return for a third season with the Longhorns.

Sherman’s contract expires after the 2017 season.

The first game Sherman will host is a road game against Louisiana-Monroe on Nov. 22 at 9 p.m.


Sherman has coached the Longhorn offense for the last four seasons and has an 11-2 record during that time.

Sherman, who coached quarterbacks in his final two seasons with the Horns, has completed 4,983 of his 5,859 passes for 10,521 yards and 39 touchdowns.

He also has 11 interceptions.

Sherman will be joined on the Texas coaching staff by quarterbacks coach Kevin Steele, who will become the team’s quarterbacks coach.

Steele was hired by Texas on Dec. 19 and will be in charge of quarterbacks in 2018.

He has thrown for 6,065 yards with 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

Steele also served as Texas’ offensive coordinator from 2005-09.

He led the Longhamian offense to two bowl appearances and the 2005 national championship game.

The Horns are 2-2 in his first season in Austin.

Sherman coached quarterbacks at Louisiana-Lafayette from 2000-04.

He guided the Tigers to four bowl appearances in two seasons (2003, 2004, 2005).

The Tigers went on to win the 2004 National Championship and the 2007 National Championship, respectively.

Sherman was named a finalist for the Bob Stoops Trophy in 2009.

He was also named to the Bob Lilly Award’s inaugural College Football Hall of Fame class in 2011.

He is the fourth Texas coach to win two Big 12 championships (2007, 2008), the third to win both national championships (2000, 2003, 2005) and the first to coach a team to two conference championships (2002, 2003).

Texas returns three starters in its secondary for the 2017 campaign, with junior cornerback Tyree Robinson and redshirt freshman cornerback Isaiah Johnson returning from last year’s season-ending injury.

Robinson and Johnson, who were both freshmen, are among the nation’s top corners and return two of the top four tacklers in the nation.

Johnson earned the first-team All-SEC honors in 2017, while Robinson was second-team selection.

The Longhorns are 5-2 when both players are on the field.

Robinson, who missed the 2017 bowl game because of injury, leads the team with eight interceptions and is third on the team in tackles with 24.

Johnson leads the conference with 17 passes defensed.

The junior will make his first career start in the Longhavids second game against Missouri on Nov, 16.
