AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Former Texas coach Darrell Royal was remembered Tuesday as a humble champion who built a powerhouse football program and a Longhorn brand known around the world.
About 1,200 people attended a memorial service for the coach who led Texas to national championships in 1963 and 1969 and a share of a third in 1970. Royal also revolutionized college football when he introduced the wishbone offense in 1968.
Royal died in Austin on Nov. 7 at the age of 88. He was buried at the Texas State Cemetery in a private service on Monday.
Among those attending the public memorial were former Arkansas coach Frank Broyles, former Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer and former Texas A&M Heisman Trophy winner John David Crow. Country singer Willie Nelson sang ``Healing Hands of Time.''
