COLLEGE STATION (AP) – Four Big 12 football coaches say “we’re all on the same team” in a public service announcement against wildfires in drought-stricken Texas.
The spot unveiled Tuesday features Texas coach Mack Brown, Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville, Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman and Baylor coach Art Briles.
The coaches, in the PSA for the Texas Forest Service, talk about working together to reduce the risk of wildfires.
The agency says Texas wildfires have burned more than 3.5 million acres since last November. All but three of the state’s 254 counties had outdoor burn bans in effect Tuesday.
