Several media outlets are reporting that Montana State Bobcat head coach Jeff Choate is leaving for the University of Texas. Rumors began circulating early Friday evening that an announcement was forthcoming.

It is believed that Choate will become the Longhorns special teams & linebackers coach.

Two weeks ago, Choate was one of the finalists for the head coaching vacancy at Boise State but lost out to Oregon Defensive Coordinator Andy Avalos.

Choate became the Montana State head coach back in 2016. He was 28-22 and never lost to the Montana Grizzlies, beating them in all four games he coached against them.

This is a developing story . . .
