"This group is hungry for a change, they're excited about it because they can see that receivers catch a lot of balls in this offense."

Charlie Strong calls Texas Longhorns wide receivers coach Charlie Williams "the old man of the bunch." The longtime coaching veteran was hired in February to replace the departed Jay Norvell, arriving in Austin after a stint with the Indianapolis Colts and brings more than 30 years of coaching experience with him.

Above, check out his "mic'd up" segment from TexasSports.com as he runs his players through drills and talks about the 'Horns new offense.

"This group is hungry for a change, they're excited about it because they can see that receivers catch a lot of balls in this offense," Williams says. "It's a great new challenge, I do like it because you move down the field so fast."

Williams and Strong have known each other for more than a decade dating back to Strong's days at South Carolina. In Indianapolis, Williams spent two seasons as wide receivers coach and one season as running backs coach. He coached receivers at North Carolina from 2007-2011 and also had successful runs at Arizona and South Carolina.
