My favorite story about Darrell was when he was invited by Jody Conradt to be a guest coach at a Lady Longhorn basketball game. One of his other guest coaches was Barbara Jordan. When asked if anyone wanted to say something to the team in the locker room, Barbara proceeded to give an inspiring speech that had us all wanting the coach to put us in -- even those of us in street clothes. After the team ran back out onto the court, Darrell turned to Barbara and said "you know, I made a mistake in my coaching career... " (and you could hear a pin drop as he continued)... "that I did not ask you into my locker room to give a half time speech."

Thank you, Darrell, for all you have meant to many generations of Texans.
