  • Former Texas football head coach Charlie Strong has a new gig. ESPN reported earlier today that Strong will join Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide as a defensive analyst. Strong most recently was the head coach for the South Florida Bulls. During his team as the Longhorns’ head honcho from 2014 to 2016, he finished with a 17-18 record overall.
  • Speaking of former Longhorns, Texas alum Cedric Reed is showing what he’s made up with the Los Angeles Wildcats in the XFL. Over the weekend, Reed notched a quarterback hurry and sack against the Dallas Renegades. The quarterback: former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Landry Jones, who’s leading former Sooners head coach Bob Stoops’ offense.
  • Changes are on the way for fans of the Forty Acres. Check out this time-lapse video of renovations happening at Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium.
  • Texas football’s spring practice dates were announced today. Practice will kick off on March 24 and the annual spring game will be held on April 25, with 14 practice in between. Among the incoming 2020 freshman participating this spring will be quarterback Hudson Card, defensive linemen Vernon Broughton and Sawyer Goram-Welch, safeties Xavion Alfred and Jerrin Thompson, offensive linemen Jake Majors and Logan Parr, and receiver Troy Omeire.
  • Pro Football Talk has named former Longhorn Earl Thomas the top safety of the decade. From PFT: “Thomas anchored the best secondary of the decade during his time in Seattle and has a Super Bowl ring to show for their efforts. Thomas was named a first-team All-Pro three times during his run in Seattle and made an impact across the board, but especially in the passing game. He ranks third among all players in interceptions since 2010 and his play with the Ravens this season shows that there will be more to come.”
