Video: Mic'd up with Texas defensive coordinator Vance Bedford

Vance Bedford played at Texas from 1977-81. A native of Beaumont, Texas, Bedford was recruited by Darrell Royal and watched up close as Earl Campbell battered and bruised his way to the school's first Heisman Trophy.

After a short stint in professional football, he jumped into coaching at Forest Brook High School in 1985, and the ascended to college football at Navarro Junior College in 1986. In the near 30 years since then, Bedford has made seven different college stops, plus five years with the Chicago Bears, but never put the burnt orange back on until this year. 

As you'll see in the video below, he's back in his element.
