Longhorns Prep for Football Next Week Amid Severe Budget Cuts

The University of Texas Athletics Department is making budget cuts that will include layoffs and furloughs.

UT Athletics Director Chris Del Conte said the move was "heartbreaking" but necessary, considering the economic impact of the pandemic.

More than 200 athletics department employees are receiving temporary pay cuts, while some positions are being eliminated.

In all, UT says it's cutting expenses by more than 13-million dollars.

The first Longhorns game, as things currently stand, will be next weekend, Saturday September 12 at 7 pm against UTEP.
