Statement from Texas Men’s Athletics Director Mike Perrin on the hiring of Casey Horny

The University of Texas does not tolerate sexual assault and is firmly committed to preventing it on our campus. We are working every day to continue our culture of preparing students to win with integrity in academics, in athletics and in life.

Before approving the hiring, I spoke at length with Coach Horny and reviewed his background and his role at previous universities. Coach Horny committed to Coach Herman and me that he is in total alignment with our culture of integrity at The University of Texas.

Like others, I question Coach Horny supporting some commentary on social media. After further discussion with Coach Horny, he understands such actions will not be tolerated at Texas.
