Longhorns wide receivers coach Bobby Kennedy has resigned from his position at Texas and will accept a similar role at the University of Colorado, pending completion of final paperwork, Mack Brown confirmed Thursday. Kennedy is a native of Boulder, Colo., and a graduate of Boulder High School. He played quarterback at the University of Northern Colorado. Below are comments regarding the move from Kennedy and Brown.
"It's really a tough deal leaving a place you love so much and have had so many great memories at, but going home, getting reacquainted with a lot of old friends and being closer to family was something I really felt like I needed to do. I can't thank Coach Brown enough for the wonderful opportunity he gave me when he hired me at Texas. It's been seven terrific years and everyone has been awesome to work with. Thanks to DeLoss Dodds, President Powers, the staff and especially all of my players for allowing me to be a part of this special place and for all of their support. I will really miss Texas and always appreciate my time here."
"We really appreciate everything Bobby did for us in his seven years here. He's been a part of a staff that helped us win a National Championship, play for another and finish in the top five two other times, so he had a really successful run at Texas. We'll miss him, but Colorado is home and is just an opportunity he didn't think he could pass up."
