McCoy tells paper he’ll return to Texas

AUSTIN, Texas (AP)—Texas quarterback Colt McCoy confirmed that he’ll return to the Longhorns for his senior season in 2009.

McCoy has led No. 3 Texas (11-1) to a Fiesta Bowl matchup against Ohio State with 3,445 yards passing and 32 touchdowns, both team records. He’s also the team’s leading rusher with 576 yards and is expected to be a finalist for the Heisman Trophy this week.

“I’m not going anywhere,” McCoy said in an interview published Monday on the Austin American-Statesman’s Web site.

McCoy said he wants to try to win a national championship next season after falling one spot short of the Bowl Championship Series title game this season.

McCoy has said all season he plans to be back next year, but said recently that he would at least inquire about his potential draft status.
