Texas Longhorns fans have dismissed claims and suggestions that Arch Manning will transfer all year. Even after Maalik Murphy transferred to Duke, setting up the stage for Manning to be Quinn Ewers’ understudy, insiders argued that the young quarterback make a move to play. But Manning’s family has been against that choice, and Arch himself seems to be cool with the situation at hand.

Longhorns great Colt McCoy recently voiced support for Manning and the decision he’s made to sit behind Ewers. McCoy, a former Teas quarterback superstar, knows a thing or two about what it takes to be under center in Austin. McCoy argued that Manning can maximize his potential by sitting behind Ewers and, more importantly, playing and practicing in head coach Steve Sarkisian’s system.

“I think from Arch’s perspective … if I’m a high school quarterback if I’m growing up in Texas, there’s one place I wanna go. I wanna play for Coach Sark,” McCoy said. “I think Arch recognizes that.”

“Arch is saying, ‘Yeah I’m very comfortable here, where I’m at,'” McCoy argued. “‘Yeah we all want to play but I’m learning, I’m growing so that when the ball’s in my hands when I get out there, I trust the system.'”

Texas fans who found what McCoy had to say were buying it all the way.
