Sources Say Charlie Strong Is The Guy

Andy Lyons

The coaching search may have come to an end. Multiple sources are reporting Texas has hired Louisville head coach Charlie Strong to succeed Mack Brown. Bobby Burton, Horns 247, was the first to report the hire.

Barking Carnival said this about Strong:

Strong is a good defensive football coach and an utterly unpolished country boy. Flawlessly conducted press conferences would be a thing of the past. I don't particularly mind as I don't have the emotional need for my head football coach to serve as my confidante, small town mayor, and British House of Commons wit, but it would be a fascinating redefinition of program culture.  I think he's a good man and coach whose rough edges may not cut light well under a brighter spotlight. Can we deal with that? Can he?

I'll post more as the information becomes available.
