After weeks of speculation and confusion, it looks like the Texas Longhorns have finally found their guy when it comes to who will run their offense going forward. There were reports earlier in the week that Tulsa offensive coordinator had accepted the job and then turned it down.
According to multiple reports, Gilbert has now accepted the job with the Longhorns and is expected to be introduced soon. FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman broke the news first via Twitter.

This decision comes after it was reported that the Longhorns would hire TCU offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie, but those reports were denied just last week as well.
He worked with the Golden Hurricane this season and has prior experience at Bowling Green and Eastern Illinois.
