Vince Young hired by University of Texas; starts Sept. 1

Former Texas quarterback Vince Young has been hired by the university to work with the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement, the school announced Thursday.

Young, who starts Sept. 1, will help with alumni relations and focus on programs that support first-generation college students from low-income backgrounds.

As early as last spring, Young had started conversations with university administrators about a job outside of the athletic department. The American-Statesman reported on Aug. 4 that Young was close to finalizing the position that would pay him $100,000 annually.

Athletic department officials have always maintained this job was on the university side. But Young is such a widely-recognized personality on the UT campus, itís likely heíll continue to make appearances at football events.

2. Mostly because I would be thrilled to be getting a six-figure paycheck for what seems like an easy

job. I know that he has a family and unpaid debts, but most of us don't have the connections to obtain a job with that large a salary.
