Hiring Beck fills one of the last major spots on Herman’s staff as he tries to turn a program after three consecutive losing seasons under Charlie Strong. The Longhorns haven’t played in a bowl since the 2014 season.
Beck also was previously the offensive coordinator at Nebraska and an offensive assistant at Kansas. He joins Texas after Ohio State lost 31-0 to Clemson last week in the College Football Playoff.
Contract details for Beck at Texas were not released Tuesday. Beck’s contract must still be approved by the university’s Board of Regents.
