Texas Longhorns Fire Charlie Strong


After failing to reach a bowl game yet again, the University of Texas has decided to let go of head coach Charlie Strong. In three seasons with the Longhorns, Strong compiled a record of (16-21). In their season finale against TCU, the Longhorns were defeated 31-9.

Following the game on Friday, Strong appeared to be optimistic for the future.

“The foundation has been laid here. The thing is, we’ve been building it for three years. Even when I looked at it, I said the third year we’ll make progress, the fourth year will be our year,” Strong said.

“It’s just like baking a cake. The cake has been baked. The only thing you need to do now is put the icing on it and slice it. That’s what this team is. The cake has been baked. Now it’s just ready to be sliced.”

Houston’s Tom Herman is the likely candidate to replace Strong.
