Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on the Passing of Coach Darrell K Royal
Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding the passing of former University of Texas Football Coach Darrell K Royal:
"Darrell Royal was a coaching icon and the face of football in the Lone Star State for a generation of Texans. His legacy can be counted in national championships, but also in his unending devotion to his university and in the Darrell K Royal Research Fund for Alzheimer's Disease. Anita and I join Texans everywhere in mourning his loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his beloved wife, Edith, son, Mack, and his extended family and friends."
