The University of Texas has one of the premier athletics programs in the nation. The University's teams, known as the "Longhorns" have long been an outstanding part of the school's identity. To date, the University's sports teams have won 47 national championships.

 

As a member of the Big 12 Conference, football is the biggest sport at the University. Under coaches Darrell Royal and Mack Brown, it has been expected that the Longhorns will appear in the end-of-season polls and big bowl games. Among the reasons for the Longhorns' history of football success are the coaches to have guided the team. The early history of the Longhorns' football teams was characterized by frequent changes in head coach. However, beginning with the hiring of Dana Bible in1937, the Longhorns' had found the first in a long line of successful coaches. Although his first three season at the helm were markedly unspectacular, by 1940 Texas had returned to its winning ways. In ten years as coach, Dana Bible guided the Longhorns to a record of 63-31-3 and five top 25 finishes in the polls.

Following Bible's retirement, the Longhorns hired Blair Cherry. In four seasons (1947-1950), he led the Longhorns to a 32-10-1 record and a top five ranking in two of his seasons. Nevertheless, in 1950 he also retired.

Cherry's successor was Ed Price, who remained at Texas from 1951 until 1956. In his six seasons as coach, Texas went 33-27-1.

In 1957, Texas hired Darrell K. Royal to be the next football coach, and in him found the man that would lead the program to some of its greatest achievements. In his 20 years as coach of the Longhorns, Royal compiled a record of 167-45-5. With Royal at the helm, Texas won three national championships (1963, 1969, 1970), 11 Southwest Conference championships and played in 16 bowl games.

Following Royal was Fred Akers. In his 10 seasons in Austin, he compiled a record of 86-32-1, two conference championships and 9 straight bowl game appearances. Despite his success, Akers was unable to live up to the standard of his predecessor and he left following the 1986 season to coach Purdue.

The Longhorns' next head coach was David McWilliams, who lasted only five seasons in Austin (1987-1991). The Longhorns struggled during this time, as they had only two winning seasons, one conference championship (1990) and two bowl game appearances.

John Mackovic succeeded McWilliams in 1992. In his six seasons at Texas, he compiled a record of 41-28-2, to go along with three conference championships and three bowl game appearances.

After Mackovic, Texas hired Mack Brown away from North Carolina as coach. Now in his tenth season with Texas, Brown has set a high standard of performance at the University. As of 2007, he has guided the Longhorns to a 102-25 record, ten straight bowl appearances, one conference title and a national championship (2005).

Overall, the Texas Longhorns have won 29 conference titles and 4 national championships in college football.
