The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Texas Longhorns Football legend, Vince Young has a job offer waiting for him at Texas when his career is over.

“If football doesn’t work out for me, the university has a great job for me,” Young said Wednesday at the Touchdown Club of Houston’s luncheon featuring new UT coach Charlie Strong.

It doesn't look like the position would be as a member of the coaching staff. According to Young, the UT position would involve serving as an ambassador and doing speaking engagements.

“Whatever it is I just want to support the university,”

While Young talked about the interest he has received from a few NFL teams in the market for a free agent quarterback, he did not go into specific details.

He also said that he is ready to move on when the time is right.

“You don’t want to finish your career like that,” he said. “You want to finish your dreams you have for yourself. If it doesn’t work out you still had a great shot at it, still was a Pro Bowler, playoff guy and still got a winning percentage and things like that. If it doesn’t work out it’s in God’s hands. I just stay strong and continue to live my life and enjoy my life, especially taking care of my little ones.”

Young was the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2006 and was a two-time Pro Bowl selection.
