Texas athletic director Chris Del Conte announced the move Sunday by tweeting a picture of himself with Schaefer and his family holding up the “Hook’em Horns” hand signal. he move comes just two days after Texas dismissed eight-year coach Karen Aston at the end of her contract. Aston had reached the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 or farther four times. Schaefer's teams lost the tournament championship game in 2017 and 2018. The Bulldogs were 27-9 last season.
