Vince Young reportedly fired from part-time job at Texas

Vince Young

Things are quite rough for Texas icon Vince Young these days, as he has reportedly lost his part-time job at Texas after months of poor performance.

According to Jim Vertuno of the Associated Press, Young lost his job as a part-time development officer after skipping various meetings, performing poorly, and not communicating with his superiors. A Feb. 4 drunken driving arrest was the last straw for the university.

As early as September 2017, Young was being reprimanded for not showing up to work during appointed hours, skipping meetings with superiors without notice, and missing months of timesheets. While Young seemed to be successful in his public-facing ambassador role, his behind the scenes performance was unacceptable.

The breaking point came when Young was arrested for DWI, which he says he is not guilty of. He did not notify the school of the arrest until he did so by text the next day, when the information was already in the media. On Feb. 15, he was notified that he would be fired unless he could demonstrate a reason to keep him on.

Young had worked at Texas in some form since 2014. It appears the school was left with no choice but to make the decision they did.
