Former Texas star QB Major Applewhite is lucky that a mistake he made toward the end of his first season as an assistant at his alma mater didn’t ruin his life.
On Saturday, Longhorns AD Deloss Dodds released a statement revealing that Applewhite had a one-night stand with an adult student during Texas’ trip to the 2009 Fiesta Bowl. What’s worse, Applewhite’s wife, Julie, was nine months pregnant with their daughter Lila at the time.
Fortunately, Applewhite has held on to both his marriage and his job – he is currently the Longhorns’ co-offensive coordinator – despite that slip-up for the UT icon. Major Applewhite profile
