To watch new head coach Shaka Smart and his signature “havoc” style of play, it is going to cost a little bit more. All basketball season tickets have risen by an average of 7 percent with this latest price increase.
Less than a week after Rick Barnes left the head coaching job, Texas found its program’s 24th basketball coach. Shaka Smart, who spent the last six seasons coaching at Virginia Commonwealth University, finally left the Rams after essentially rewriting the program’s history book.
Rick Barnes is gone from his post after 17 seasons with the Longhorns, leaving the head coaching position vacant. Texas immediately began the search for his replacement, which it could find within a week.
