In a report today by Brian Davis of the Austin American-Statesman, Texas Director of Athletics Chris Del Conte confirmed that Shaka Smart will return as the Longhorns head basketball coach next season.
Del Conte told the American-Statesman, “Shaka’s our coach. Nothing’s changed. We won five of the last six down the stretch, finished third in the conference. We have a good team coming back. Nothing’s changed on my end.”
Smart is 90-78 in his five year tenure at Texas, including a 40-50 mark in the Big 12. He has 3-years left on his $10.5m contract.
