Major Applewhite Booking Agent Details

Major Applewhite played quarterback at the University of Texas from 1998-2001. He earned Big 12 Conference Freshman of the Year honors in 1998 and, in 1999, helped lead Texas to a Big 12 Championship and Cotton Bowl appearance. That season, Applewhite received first-team All-Big 12 accolades and was honored as Big 12 Co-Offensive Player of the Year.  By the time he was done in Austin, Applewhite had set many school records, including most total offensive yards in a season and career, a record since broken by Vince Young, and most games played by a quarterback, a mark since bested by Colt McCoy.

After his playing days, Applewhite went into coaching, first serving as a graduate assistant for the Longhorns and later coaching at Syracuse (2005), Rice (2006), Alabama (2007) and Texas (2008-2013) before being hired by the University of Houston in 2015 as the school’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He was promoted to head coach on December 9, 2016 prior to the Cougars’ appearance in the Las Vegas Bowl and went on to serve position for two seasons through 2018.

In his first full season as head coach at Houston, he guided the Cougars to a 7-4 regular season record and spot in the Hawaii Bowl. In 2018, Houston improved to 8-4 and won a share of the American Athletic Conference West Division title before playing in the Armed Force Bowl. In 2019, Applewhite returned to Tuscaloosa and joined Nick Saban’s staff as an analyst.
