It’s been over eight years since Vince Young played football at the University of Texas, but now the star is back in a new capacity.

The player that single-handedly beat the USC Trojans to win the 2005 National Championship is back in Austin. The school announced that Young will serve as “development officer for program alumni relations”. His primary role will be to help raise funds for programs that address educational challenges for students who come from a low income background as well as first-generation college students.

“Vince’s passion for the educational success of young people and his experiences as a first-generation college graduate make him a perfect fit for this role,” said Gregory J. Vincent, vice president for diversity and community engagement. “We are excited about the enthusiasm and skill set he is bringing to our team and look forward to working with Vince.” [University of Texas]

The press release indicates that Young was involved in the program as a student as well.

Along with all of his collegiate achievements, Young also played six years in the NFL.
