Former University of Texas head coach and current ESPN college football commentator Mack Brown on Tuesday responded to the Redskins’ tweet about roster moves for two reasons.
First, Brown was sending well wishes to quarterback Colt McCoy after it was announced that his was placed on Injured-Reserve.
McCoy started every game during his four years at Texas, leading the Longhorns to a 45-8 record with a National Championship Game appearance following the 2009 season.
He threw for more than 13,000 yards with 112 touchdowns to go along with 20 rushing touchdowns.
Brown then tweeted his congrats to Jackson Jeffcoat as he was signed to the active roster once again.
Jeffcoat appeared in 40 games with 33 starts at Texas.
As a freshman, he was named honorable mention Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year after posting 15 tackles, six tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks.
During a highly productive senior season, Jeffcoat earned All-American honors and became the first Longhorn to win the Ted Hendricks Award – given to college football’s top defense end – since current Redskin Brian Orakpo.
In total, he recorded 86 tackles, 13 sacks and 19 quarterback pressures.
