Report: Under Armour to make record apparel offer to Texas

It may not be long before the Texas Longhorns uniforms get a new addition.

Rather than wearing the logo of apparel giant Nike on the left breast, the Longhorns could be making the switch to Under Armour.

According to a report from Chip Brown of Horns Digest, Under Armour is set to offer Texas and athletics director Steve Patterson a record-setting deal that could pay as much as a staggering $150 million over ten years.

Under Armour currently has the most lucrative deal in college sports after giving a reported $90 million over 10 years to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. That kind of money will be enticing to anyone, despite the long-standing relationship between Nike and the Longhorns.

So, is there really a chance that Texas leaves Nike?

“Nike has always been seen as the leader because of the history between Nike and Texas. But officials said Under Armour is not deterred and will continue to make an aggressive bid and that Steve Patterson is enamored,” Brown wrote.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out in Austin.
