- A 4th round pick of the Dallas Cowboys in 2008.
- Tashard’s college resume included 697 rushes for 3,465 yards and 28 TDs, to go along with 41 receptions for 288 yards.
- Battled with fellow rookie Felix Jones to back up Marion Barber at RB.
- Finished rookie year with 92 carries for 472 yards and 2 TDs.
- Became firmly entrenched as the 3rd string back behind Jones and Barber in 2009, but saw workload again increase due to injuries to both of them.
- Had 64 carries for 349 yards and 3 TDs- including a career high 66 tard long and a healthy 5.5 yards per carry.
- Again, off the bench in 2010, Choice had 66 carries for 243 yards and 3 TDs.
- In 2011, Choice dealt with nagging injuries, and after a bit of bad luck, watched DeMarco Murray supplant him on the depth chart, and ultimately make Tashard expendable.
- Cut by the Cowboys, Choice spent the next two seasons as an emergency RB with the Redskins, Bills, and Colts.
- Went into coaching in 2016, joining the Cowboys as an intern.
- Later in 2017 was added to North Texas’ coaching staff as a graduate assistant, and then later as a RB coach.
- In 2019, coached RBs at his alma mater, Georgia Tech.
- Landed the RBs job at the University of Texas.
I took a shot at Tashard right after he was hired at the University of Texas to coach their runningbacks in 2022, which created a small frenzy of TTM activity after he signed my cards.
