Vince Young, the 31-year old former star QB who squandered more than $25 million in less than a decade and filed for bankruptcy last year, is gainfully employed.
Young, who in 2005 led the Texas Longhorns to one of the most thrilling National Championship victories in the BCS era, is now working for the University. His official job title, according to the press release, is “development officer for program alumni relations.” The school says he will “help raise money to support [Division of Diversity and Community Engagement] programs that address the educational challenges of first-generation college students and students from low-incoming backgrounds.”
Very cool. Brilliant idea.
It’s a win-win for everyone involved, especially the students he’ll be working with. Want to feel welcome on the gigantic University of Texas campus? Well, arguably the most popular Longhorn in the history of the school – sorry, Earl Campbell – will show you around.
Oh, and that USC team Young beat – he had 267 yards passing and 200 rushing and three TDs – was supposed to be one of the greatest teams in the history of college football, if you believed the hype leading up to the game.
