08:19 AM ET 12.18 | Major Applewhite, newly named Texas co-offensive coordinator, won't be talking to the media until Dec. 26, but he's already been given a great deal of say in Austin. Also with new titles are wide receivers coach Darrell Wyatt (now co-offensive coordinator), line coach Stacy Searels (assistant head coach) and tight ends coach Bruce Chambers (recruiting coordinator). But [Mack Brown] emphasized that Applewhite, 34, will run the show. "With Major's passion, energy and savvy at play-calling, it's his baby," Brown said. "He's excited about that challenge." ... [Applewhite] has coached running backs since returning to Texas in 2008. But he now assumes [Bryan Harsin's] job of coaching the quarterbacks.

Can't call him General until he is a head coach. Besides The Colonels chicken is good. Not as good as moms of course but it is finger licking good. Just like my mistress.
