Longhorns fans are excited about Steve Sarkisian after watching Alabama.
Alabama is currently tearing up the Ohio State secondary in the College Football Playoff National Championship. Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian has Mac Jones making wide-open throws to DeVonta Smith, who has absolutely ravaged Shaun Wade and the Buckeyes.
Sarkisian, who will become the head coach at Texas after this game, is getting Longhorn fans excited about what he’ll do in the Big 12 with their stockpile of elite recruits from all over the state.
Steve Sarkisian is getting rave reviews in Austin
“Speak For Yourself” host and former Longhorn Emmanuel Acho is thrilled with this performance, hoping that he seamlessly transitions over to life in Austin.

Even during the middle of the first half, UT fans were getting pumped about Sark’s potential in burnt orange.
I was indifferent but 1.5 quarters into this game, I am VERY excited to see what Sark can do with Texas.#HookEm

Sarkisian’s offense uses a lot more motion and looks infinitely more creative than that of Tom Herman.
One of the most underrated parts of Sarkisian’s offense is how he utilizes motion. The Tide use it almost every play to create mismatches, misdirection and confusion. Texas has not used enough motion the last few years. #HookEm

Smith has been wide open all game, a fact that has Longhorn fans in awe
So impressed that he gets a Heisman Trophy winner wide open in space…repeatedly.

Sarkisian is showing everyone why he won the Broyles Award this season.
Coach Sark's offense is so dynamic and electric!! Really fun to watch!!

Longhorn fans are expecting running back Bijan Robinson to match Najee Harris’ production.
Tom Herman: “Don’t give the ball to Bijan, it’s the thing they’ll least expect!”
Sark: “You know Smith is getting the ball. I know Smith is getting the ball. I’m still throwing Smith the ball”

Some UT fans think Robinson could be a Heisman contender under Sarkisian.
Bijan with Sark is your 2022 Heisman Frontrunner

Texas quarterback Casey Thompson looks primed for improvement under Sarkisian.
Sark and Casey Thompson are gonna be fun to watch at Texas next season. Can't wait 🤠#NationalChampionship

Texas fans are hoping Sarkisian can bring them back to the Mack Brown glory days.
These teams are on another level compared to texas hopefully sark changes that

Who knows? Maybe Sarkisian can also help fix Texas’ defensive woes.
Can Steve Sarkisian call plays for the Texas offense AND defense?

Sarkisian didn’t dominate at USC, but he looks like exactly the type of coach Texas needs right now.
