The University of Texas is renaming Joe Jamail Field at the request of the Jamail family...
According to the school, the name change came at the request of the Jamail family.
Nothing controversial about Jamail that we're aware of -- he was a wealthy UT alum who donated a ton of money to the University and they honored him by naming the field after him in 1997. He passed away in 2015 at age 90.
Ricky issued a statement on the honor ... saying, "Earl and myself are honored to be part of the momentum of change sweeping our alma mater, the University of Texas, the nation, and the world."
He added, "We recognize the naming of Campbell/Williams Field is a historic moment and we urge our nation's univiersities to continue to reflect and review the history, symbolism, and dentities that we place on monuments, public institutions, and sports organizations."
Campbell also spoke out -- saying, "The symbolism of this honor transcends the recognition of the Heisman Trophies we received."
