Sherman's Thompson added to UNT Hall of Fame
Sherman offensive coordinator Derek Thompson was named to the University of North Texas class of 2020 Hall of Fame Tuesday.
Thompson is the program's third leading passer in terms of passing yardage. He engineered the Mean Green's most recent bowl win, a 2014 Heart of Dallas Bowl conquest over UNLV.
Thompson threw for 7,477 career passing yards, ranks fifth in program history in career touchdown passes with 42, is third in career passing attempts (1,055), third in career completions (636), fifth in career passing efficiency (126.27), fifth in career completion percentage (60.3%) and is second in career 300-plus yard passing games (seven).
Thompson had the fifth-most passing yards in a single season (2,896), the fifth-most completions (251) and the third-best completion percentage in a single season (64.3).
Thompson's crowning achievement was also his sendoff, after he was named 2014 Heart of Dallas Bowl MVP following the 36-14 win over UNLV. Thompson completed 21-30 passes for 256 yards and two touchdowns and no interceptions in the win.
