• Young pleads no contest, sentenced to probation

    Former Texas quarterback Vince Young pleaded no contest and was sentenced to 18 months probation on Thursday. The Travis County court also issued the Texas legend a $300 fine and 60 months of community service for his DWI arrest on Jan. 24, 2016.

    Young must also complete a drunk driving class, and he has a breathalyzer in his car that won't start the ignition if it detects alcohol on his breath.

    The incident nearly one year ago occurred when Young was pulled over on the I-35 service road. He said he had “three or four beers,” but his blood-alcohol level came out to be 0.15 — more than two times the legal limit.

    Young is still employed by the university, where he works in the development office. He also works for Longhorn Network and can be seen on the channel’s pre and post-game coverage.

  • Longhorns suspend Tevin Mack indefinitely

    Sophomore guard Tevin Mack has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.

    “We have a set of standards that we expect people in our program to adhere to,” head coach Shaka Smart said in a statement Thursday. “Tevin has failed to reach them.”

    This marks Mack's second suspension this season. The guard was suspended for another violation of team rules in the preseason and sat out an exhibition game along with the team's season opener.

    Mack leads the Longhorns in scoring this season, averaging nearly 15 points per game. He scored nine points in Wednesday's loss against TCU, only the fourth time this season he's failed to score in double-digits.

    The suspension comes at an inopportune time for the Longhorns as the team enters a grueling part of their schedule. Texas' next three games are against No. 10 West Virginia at home and No. 1 Baylor and No. 2 Kansas on the road.  

    The Longhorns tipoff against the Mountaineers this Saturday at 3 p.m.
