AUSTIN, Texas — There are changes aplenty surrounding the Texas football team in the run-up to its 2020 spring drills, with new coaches on board, new players already on campus, returning players moving to new positions and the construction on the new South End Zone complex at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium in high gear.

Given the flurry of changes, it would be understandable to think that there is a sense of urgency around the Longhorns, even after an 8-5 season, a top-25 finish and a Valero Alamo Bowl victory over Utah in their respective hip pockets.
