Texas AD Chris Del Conte: We are ‘disappointed’
Texas athletic director Chris Del Conte expressed disappointment with the way the Longhorns’ football season has gone this year.
Texas throttled Texas Tech 49-24 on Friday to finish the regular season 7-5. After going 10-4 last season and beating Georgia in the Sugar Bowl, there was optimism about Texas being “back” and ready to return to elite status. Instead, they returned to mediocre form.
Del Conte said Friday that they are “disappointed” because they were expecting more.
Texas AD Chris Del Conte confirms he personally won’t make assistant changes. That’s up to Tom Herman. “We’re all disappointed because of expectations. We all had great expectations.”

Del Conte’s statement seems to second the notion that Tom Herman will soon make changes to his coaching staff.
Texas’ 5-2 start to the season may not have been what they wanted, but it was understandable considering LSU and Oklahoma are two of the best teams in the country. However, the ensuing defeats to TCU, Iowa State and Baylor are where Herman really lost it. Those are not games they should have lost this season, which explains the disappointment.
