With the firing of Rick Barnes becoming official, the Texas Longhorns will desperately try to hire someone that can take their program to the next level.

Shaka Smart and Gregg Marshall both led their schools to their lone final four appearances in 2011 and 2013 respectively.
Either one of these guys would be a step in the right direction for Texas.
