McCoy, now in real estate, moving on from football


Case McCoy entered his senior year of college with an education degree and a path to professional football.

The Texas quarterback has audibled to a third option.

McCoy, who led Texas to a 7-3 record as a starter and an Alamo Bowl appearance after taking over for an injured David Ash in the fourth game, launched a career in commercial real estate last week, and he’s sticking around in Austin to do it.

McCoy, who is still awaiting an official job title, is getting familiar with the corporate services arm of HPI Real Estate. He will work as an advisor to tenants.

“I was able to walk away from the game healthy, and a game I have played my whole life,” McCoy said. “I wanted to find a new passion. I haven’t been in it long, but I know it’s something I can find my niche in.”

HPI is a real estate company that serves Austin and San Antonio. McCoy’s link to the business is Dick Anderson, a former SMU defensive tackle and a McCoy family friend who helped found the company some 20 years ago.

“Case is smart. He’s very relational; he’s a hard worker; and he has great communication skills,” said Jeff Pace, managing director of HPI’s corporate services. “He’s a fierce competitor, and he’s had to deal with adversity. He’s a terrific cultural fit for the company. We expect a lot of great things out of Case.”

McCoy did not attend Texas’ pro day in March, deciding before his senior year that it would be his last season playing football.

It was around that time, with an education degree already in hand, that he started taking courses in commercial real estate. McCoy was hooked, joking “I enjoyed going to class.”

“Coming out of Texas and being able to play there multiple years and playing in big games probably got me into doors that others wouldn’t have,” McCoy said. “And I’m very thankful for that.”
