AUSTIN, TEXAS (AP) - Texas will retire the No. 12 worn by former quarterback Colt McCoy.

McCoy, who may get his first NFL start this week with the Cleveland Browns, won an NCAA record 45 games as a starter for the Longhorns from 2006-2009. He was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2008 and last year led Texas to the Big 12 title and a berth in the national championship game.

McCoy twice won the Walter Camp Foundation national player of the year award.

Coach Mack Brown says the school will have a ceremony to retire the jersey when Texas hosts Baylor on Oct. 30.

Other Longhorns so honored include Earl Campbell (No. 20), Bobby Layne (22), Tommy Nobis (60), Ricky Williams (34) and Vince Young (10).

(This version CORRECTS number of Layne’s jersey to 22, not 11)
