Texas AD Mike Perrin released a statement today defending coach Tom Herman's hiring of former Baylor staffer Casey Horny. Perrin said he "spoke at length" with Horny and looked into his background before Herman hired him as a special teams quality control coach. Horny had defended Art Briles in past posts on his Twitter account, which he deleted after taking the Texas job. Perrin said that social media commentary "will not be tolerated at Texas."
