The former Longhorns quarterback, now a rookie with the Cleveland Browns, is expected to get his first NFL start Sunday at Pittsburgh. Then on Oct. 30, he’ll have his No. 12 jersey retired by Texas in a ceremony before the Baylor game.
McCoy, the NCAA’s all-time winningest quarterback with a 45-8 career record, met the school’s first criteria for having a jersey retired — earning a national player of the year honor recognized by the NCAA — by winning the Walter Camp Football Foundation national player of the year twice and the Maxwell Award in 2009.

wrote a column on McCoy’s Church of Christ background in December 2008, and Chronicle Editor Lynn A McMillon interviewed McCoy about faith and football last year. Back in July, we posted a humorous video of Longhorn teammate and fellow Church of Christ member Jordan Shipley serenading McCoy at his wedding.
