Really this is no surprise. I mean when March Madness and everything else in this world got canceled, I literally wrote a blog titled “Shaka Smart Officially Keeps His Job As Longhorn Head Coach”. But I’m not the Athletic director, so, I guess now it is Officially Official Shaka Smart Keeps His Job As Longhorns Head Coach*. As much as jobs COVID-19 has killed across this country, it did save one mans.
But like I said two week ago, that’s not necessarily a bad thing for Longhorns. Because there is a bright side with Shaka staying in Austin, that bright side is 6’ 9”, 195 lbs and goes by the name of Greg Brown III:
Now, given today's Shaka news, I would think Greg Brown pulls the trigger on Texas. A combo of Sims, Hamm, Kai, Baker and Brown at the 4-5 spots next season? Yes, I'm intrigued.— Brian Davis (@BDavisAAS) March 27, 2020
The only problem with the Greg Brown III era is that era will be one year. The dude is 100% a top 10 NBA draft pick in 2021.
