Texas coach Charlie Strong announced Wednesday evening that the quarterback is giving up football. Strong said Ash approached him to let him know and that "we kind of saw this" coming.

Strong also said that while Ash will no longer play football for the Longhorns, that doesn't mean he'll no longer be a part of the team. Strong said Ash had been a "major part of this program" and that he'll continue to be a part of this team."

Ash missed most of the 2013 season thanks to a concussion, and even though he was medically cleared to return this season, he suffered another concussion during Texas' opener against North Texas. Considering his history of concussions and what we continue to discover about their long-term effects, stepping away from the game is probably the best decision Ash could make. He's only 22 years old and has his entire life ahead of him.

Bummer for Ash, but that is the best decision for his future health and well being.

His life and livelihood are more important than football. Great decision for the kid and I wish him well in the rest of his life.
