Vince Young just can’t seem to get out of his own way.
The former NFL quarterback and Texas Longhorns National Champion is an absolute legend in Austin, but it wasn’t enough to keep him employed there.
The university fired Young from his job as a development officer “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,” according to a letter obtained by the Associated Press.
The report goes on to say that Young was often absent from work and had been given warnings for more than a year. On top of that, he was arrested for drunk driving last month.
Young was the third overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft, and while he was named the offensive rookie of the year in his first season, he never truly developed into a quality quarterback during his time in the league.
