AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Day by day, Alzheimer's disease is robbing Edith Royal of her husband Darrell.
Now she's hoping that selling some of the former Texas coach's personal memorabilia will help raise money to fight the disease. Notable items for the Nov. 11 auction include a diamond pendant commemorating the 1963 national championship, and a diamond ring from the Longhorns' 2006 BCS championship game victory over Southern California.
Some of the proceeds will go to the Darrell K Royal Research Fund for Alzheimer's Disease, launched earlier this year.
Royal coached Texas from 1957-1976, won 11 Southwest Conference titles and introduced the wishbone offense to major college football in 1968.
