Meanwhile, former UT Longhorns coach Karen Aston will embark on a multi-year journey to rebuild a women’s basketball program that has long been a stain on the university’s image. Both the men’s and women’s programs face difficult questions as they head into the 2021 season, as well as the American Athletic Conference in future years.
