Vince Young still hopes to continue his NFL career. But if not, a job is waiting at the University of Texas.

“If football doesn’t work out for me, the university has a great job for me,” Young said Wednesday at the Touchdown Club of Houston luncheon featuring new UT coach Charlie Strong.

Young, the All-America quarterback who led the Longhorns to the 2005 BCS national championship, said the UT position would involve serving as an ambassador and speaking engagements.

“Just letting you know what (UT) has going on, especially helping kids get scholarships and recognizing things like that,” Young said. “Whatever it is, I just want to support the university.”

Young began his career with the Tennessee Titans, who selected him with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft. He was the NFL offensive rookie of the year and a two-time Pro Bowler before losing his job and eventually being released.

Young was a backup with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011 and was released during the preseason in 2012 and 2013 by the Buffalo Bills and Green Bay Packers, respectively.

Asked if there is any doubt he will play again in the NFL, Young said: “You never know. All I can do is my part and stay ready.”

In the meantime, Young said he has been working out in San Diego and is receiving some interest from teams, although he did not specify which ones.
