Texas has parted ways with one of its all-time greats: quarterback Vince Young.
The school confirmed an Associated Press report on Saturday that it had fired Young, who was working in a part-time position as a development officer.
A Texas spokesman confirms to me the @JimVertuno report that Vince Young has been fired by the Univ. of Texas for being absent and not talking to superiors.

Young had a DUI earlier in the year.
The Texas legend later said he was not guilty, and plans to fight the DWI arrest.
According to a termination letter:
From the Associated Press:
Texas has fired former star quarterback Vince Young from his part-time role as a development officer for poor performance and often being absent from work or not in touch with his supervisors.
The move also comes after Young had a second drunken-driving arrest within three years on Feb. 4th.
Young’s March 1 firing letter says he was dismissed “for not demonstrating significant and sustained improvement in the performance of (his) job responsibilities and failing to maintain standards of conduct suitable and acceptable to the university.” He has been given job warnings dating back to 2017.
Young’s playing career with Texas made him one of the greatest players in the history of the program.
You only get so many chances.
Vince has pretty much run out of his.
