Charlie Strong going to make me proud
AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas said Wednesday it has agreed to pay former coach Mack Brown $2.75 million that would have been owed him if he had been fired, and place him in a one-year, $500,000 job as a special assistant to the president for athletics. Both options had been part of Brown's original contract in separate clauses in case of termination or resignation. Brown announced on Dec. 14 that he would step down after Texas' bowl game and called it a "mutual" decision between himself, school President Bill Powers and athletic director Steve Patterson. He has been replaced by Charlie Strong. Brown had reportedly been negotiating for more money. Texas agreeing to pay Brown his severance buyout and give him the job raised the question whether he was fired or resigned and why he would get both options. Brown was under contract through 2020 and was one of the highest-paid coaches in the country at more than $5.4 million per year. But the coach who won the 2005 national championship and played for another in 2009 l ...

Not a UT fan never have never will be ! Charlie Strong @ matts el ranch tonight class act !!!
So "Good Luck Charlie" is ending but "Jessie" is still going strong? There is no justice in this world.
Moose, I'm sorry to learn that you have had to go back to the hospital. I hope they can ease your pain and get you home quickly. National Signing Day is a big deal in the SEC and following the signings has huge interest. So I kept an eye out for the Texas signings. It sounded like UT tried to address specific needs with this signing class. But I do remember 2 players that got some coverage around here. It sounds like the QB from Denton may be a diamond in the rough. I guess he should be the QB of the future. It's impossible to know if Ash is going to hold up. And I don't know where that leaves Swoopes. And the DE from San Antonio, Roberson, may help right away. He's a monster! I'm sure that Charlie Strong will reassert UT in the recruiting wars, especially in Texas. So better times ahead for UT...and I hope for you. I just want your better days to come sooner...like, right away! Hang tough!

This is from my 1 on 1 with UT head football coach Charlie Strong today - I feel like he was bored. Rapid Fire Questions: Full interview:
Southern California quarterback Max Wittek plans to visit Texas this weekend and has been in contact with several other schools as he considers where to transfer. Wittek is on target to graduate with a degree in psychology in May. He will be eligible to play next season, and have two years left. He says he has also heard from coaches at Louisville, Virginia Tech, Hawaii and TCU. He says he is in no rush to make a decision and Texas should not be perceived as a front-runner. The Longhorns with new coach Charlie Strong were the first to contact him. Wittek says he is not close to narrowing down his choices and plans to make more trips. He threw for 600 yards and three touchdowns in two seasons for USC.

also said Charlie Strong would be the "absolute worst" fit for Texas & that Mack Brown was treated unfairly.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. To me, this one shows the ridiculousness of Will Muschump and why I haven't liked him as a coach or a person from Day One. I don't like his antics with the refs or believe you get the most out of people by knocking them down in order to buld them back up. Muschamp MustGo and Fire Will Muschamp...win or lose in 2014 and I'm pretty *** sure we sure lose, I hope UF will get rid of him and Fooley too. I'm just disappointed that we didn't do it this year and get Charlie Strong back where he belongs!

Charlie Strong and Kevin Sumlin will likely never face off as the Head Coaches at Texas and Texas A&M, respectively. Still, both were asked about the other on signing day.
I just want to take a second and thank the administration and everyone involved at tu in the hiring of Charlie Strong... When asked today about recruiting problems and how they were going to respond to things like the swaggercopter (the maroon clad helicopter Kevin Sumlin uses for recruiting) Charlie responds with "We aren't going to be a gadget program..." When asked what he thought about the comments from Strong, Sumlin just smiled and said "judging by today, I guess we need more gadgets." Lol go go gadget 5* Strongs record since accepting the tu job 1 4* recruit gained 1 5* decommitted 4 4*'s decommitted 4 3*'s decommitted ...Speaks for itself
The question was asked if Charlie Strong would be a good fit for the University of Texas Football team. Well.so far 17 of his 23 recruits are from Texas, and 6 of those are from Houston. Like I said before, outside of him being a good coach, the recruiting angle had to be the 2nd biggest reason they hired him. Kevin Sumlin is about to lose Manziel, so recruiting within the state of Texas is about to get really interesting.
Charlie Strong talks about the first group of Longhorns that he will sign as the Head Coach of Texas.

He since leaned heavily towards Austin but has stated that he is considering Purdue after a recent visit.

Plenty of T-shirts have popped up – many of them unlicensed – since the University of Texas hired new head football coach Charlie Strong.
I am deeply disturbed over a t-shirt that was made in reference to Texas's new coach, Charlie Strong. As many of you know, he replaced Mack Brown, who stepped down after 16 seasons with the university. I simply REFUSE to post the t-shirt, but it's burnt orange, with a picture of Coach Strong .. and the caption on the shirt, reads, "Black is the new Brown". I can't help but cry, as I wonder what Coach Strong, his wife, and especially their two teenage daughters must be thinking/feeling about this atrocity. I can only pray that they brush it off, and hopefully realize that they have way more supporters standing WITH them, than bigoted *** such as the one who designed this disgusting t-shirt. I'm here to tell you .. if I ever see anyone wearing it, I'll put a tongue-lashing on them worthy of Julia Sugarbaker.

Charlie Strong was introduced as coach of the Texas Longhorns on Monday, beginning a new era in Austin.
Billy Black your boys at Penn State look like they're getting one heck of a coach. James Franklin's Vandy squad whipped our Vol *** real good last year, and this year with his team poised to lose in Neyland Stadium, out coached Tennessee's staff and pulled victory out of the jaws of defeat. He beat Georgia, Florida and Tennessee for probably the first time in Vandy history this year (Florida and Tennessee wins were impressively on the road). Passionate recruiter and coach ... I hated him when he was at Vandy, but at the same time wish we had interviewed him!! He's definitely better than the other two high profile hires this year, Charlie Strong (now at Texas) and Steve Sarkisian (now at USC) IMO.

Question for all friends: Red McCombs (U of Texas booster) is being criticized for his outspoken criticism of the Charlie Strong hire (McCombs had made a strong push for John Gruden). McCombs is under fire for these comments: ""I think the whole thing is a bit sideways. I don't have any doubt that Charlie is a fine coach. I think he would make a great position coach, maybe a coordinator. But I don't believe [he belongs at] what should be one of the three most powerful university programs in the world right now at UT-Austin. I don't think it adds up." He also allegedly called the hire a "kick in the face." Now critics have suggested his comments are racist. Do you agree or disagree?

The "Good ol Boy" network is still alive and well in Texas. Former Spurs owner Redd McCombs pretty much just said "University of a Texas made a huge mistake hiring Charlie Strong, he's maybe at best a position coach, maybe...Texas could've turned off the lights and pulled someone out of the room better than Strong...I will go along with it, just to be a team player". Obviously Red everybody YOU wanted turned down the job...maybe this is the reason why.

If U of L decides to re-hire Bobby Petrino, then they've said all they need to say... which is "we don't care what our coach has done and we only care about winning...morals be damned". Don't get me wrong, I want UK to win as well... I am just not interested in selling my soul to do so. Rick Pitino, Clint Hurtt and now Bobby Petrino. There will be a clear morals line drawn between UK and UL. Sounds like they are establishing a Father Flanagan Home for Wayward Boys at UL. I will give credit to Charlie Strong for one thing...virtually zero off the field incidents during his four years there. Can't say the same for the basketball team or the football team with Petrino if he is actually re-hired. Watch Jurich try to put a positive spin on it...
This guy bashes the Charlie Strong hire and wanted John Gruden as the UT coach. Two things, why do people think John Gruden is the savior of football coaching? And you're Texas. You haven't been relevant for a while. Mac made you decent and got an NC. You can't even win the Big12!

Welp! That didn't take long. I lasted a week. I'm just *so* curious about how Texas fans feel about Red McCombs' comments on the hiring of Charlie Strong. Me? I'm reading between the lines.

Reuters AP- The University of Texas has reported that it decided not to go with John Gruden, Bill Cowher, Jim Harbaugh, Tom Landry, or Nick Saban because, "Charlie Strong is a better fit for us at this time." The other coaches have not given any comments as they are probably too broken-hearted at being passed over.
What a month for Louisville.Ware's comeback takes a bad turn, Chane Behanan is kicked off the team and checks into rehab, Teddy Bridgewater turns pro a year early, Charlie Strong leaves for Texas and it appears our best option to replace him is a guy who dropped us like hot potato, left a note for his players in Atlanta after GIVING UP on them less than 1/2 way thru the season and threw away a good job to take a motorcycle ride with his mistress. How did the year of the Cardinal turn into the month of misery??

Texas billionaire booster Red McCombs bashed the hire of Charlie Strong in a radio interview on Monday.
Wow, it's awfully nice of Red McCombs to think Charlie Strong should be a Coordinator 1st at Texas before being their Head Coach- just like Bill O'Brien at Penn State and Al Golden at Miami...Oh wait a minute- major football school boosters didn't suggest that they "be coordinators first? (Aka "hold the door")
San Antonio businessman Red McCombs, a major University of Texas benefactor and longtime professional sports team owner, has come out firmly against the hiring of Charlie Strong as the school’s new football coach.
If I can speak for multiple thousands of alumni: what the need is more Charlie Strong and less Red McCombs. Let's do it.
Red McCombs really??? You really think hiring Charlie Strong is a kick to Texas face.
TROUBLE IN UT-AUSTIN?... Billionaire LongHorn Booster 'Red McCombs' is 'UNHAPPY' to say the least about new coaching hire 'Charlie Strong' (former Louisville coach). 'Red' thinks 'Strong' might make a good position coach, MAYBE a coordinator...but Strong is NOT ON PAR TO LEAD the great UT-Austin program! *Between The Lines: Charlie can probably supervise water breaks, MAYBE even organize 'cotton-picking work crews'... But, he CAN'T LEAD (read; OVERSEE) this great program (read; Plantation) here at UT-Austin (read; The GREAT [Confederate] State Of Texas)! SMDH! This is not a good start for The 'Strong' era at Texas.
I wonder why Red McCombs said Charlie Strong would have made a good OC or DC but not a good Head Coach at UT? Funny he forgets Mack Brown wasn't the best choice for Texas because North Carolina wasn't ever as good as Louisville was under Strong but the hypocrisy and racism has now shown itself already
Red McCombs very angry with UT's hiring of Charlie Strong. Guess Red thought with his $100million he gave to the school, HE should of been able to pick the coach.
First off let me just say that Red McCombs is an *** and Charlie Strong is a great Choice. 1. Strong invented the 3-3-5 2. He's a much better recruiter with an outstanding Pipeline. 3. Great field presence (needed) 4. Great locker room presence. I myself can finally like the Program now,I think Mack made very bad recruiting Choices, and made very ignorant statements. In 16 years you should have had at least three ships especially with UTs deep pockets. Not to mention you passed on Nick Foles, Drew Breeze, Andrew Luck and Jameis Winston you must feel like a huge *** this month especially.
Texas booster Red McCombs is upset with the school for hiring Charlie Strong, who he thinks is more of a position coach or coordinator.
Red McComb. Just say that you don't want a black Head Coach at the University of Texas. Quit with the excuses. Charlie Strong is well past qualified. John Gruden isn't going to coach anywhere next year!
Red McCombs please shut the *** up. Charlie Strong is a great hire! To call him a glorified position coach couldn't be more off base. How many Super Bowls did you lead the Vikings to?
It didn’t take very long, but we’ve found a prominent Texas Longhorns booster that is not too happy about the school’s hire of Charlie Strong as their head football coach. Long-time Texas booster Red McCombs went on with ESPN Radio in San Antonio on Tuesday and he did not pull any punches in express...
James Franklin is going to Penn State and Texas' biggest booster Red McCombs wishes Charlie Strong was never at Texas. "It's a kick to the face of Longhorn nation." Well, Franklin was available.
Big ups to Mike Wilbon for calling out Red McCombs for his racist comments on the Charlie Strong hire at Texas.
Hey Red McCombs shut your mouth...Charlie Strong will be a fine coach... News flash...the South lost the war playboy
The hiring of Charlie Strong, the Texas Longhorns' first African-American head football coach, is critical to both the growth of the sport and our culture.
I trust you've heard by now that Texas billionaire Red McCombs has been, well, somewhat less than gracious in his comments after his beloved Longhorns hired Charlie Strong to replace Mac Brown. Tho...
Money man Red McCombs does NOT like the hire of Charlie Strong!!! *** !
Red McCombs a Texas Longhorn Booster slams the AD for highering Charlie Strong as their new football coach.He went on to say he would make a fine posistion coach or coordinator but not Head Coach. Would make? He WAS the best defensive coordinator in the country while at Florida. As Louisville all he did there was make them a formidable ranked team who blasted Florida 2 years ago in a bowl game.He has alrwady proven he is a top tier Head Coach and this old scab slams the university for his hire. Strong is black and its obvioys that's the issue. McCombs has donated 100 million to the university which is to be applauded. But he should shut his oil stained mouth.Texas should not accept a penny more from him. What the f does he actually know about football anyway? His money may buy his opinion amongst his booster buddies but to the media. shut the f up.
The more I hear of Red McCombs unconscionably tasteless and whiny comments on the hiring of Charlie Strong, (UT head football coach) the less I mind that Mr. McCombs is already beyond his life expectancy. Vaya con Dios Red, but please vaya.
*** Red McCombs a booster for Texas is hot about Charlie Strong hire, he don't wanna see a brother with that job smh!!! he said it was a kick in the face!!!
Red McCombs doesn't like Texas's hiring of Charlie Strong. Red is such a great barometer of hiring football coaches
There is this guy named Red McCombs, who has contributed over 150 million dollars to the University of Texas big baller booster, just like Phil Knight (CEO) Nike. These guys have some big balls, so apparently, this Red Fella is fumigating over Charlie Strong's hiring (Charlie) is African-American, and highly qualified. I guess he wanted Jon Gruden or an All-American Good Ole boy like his son or somebody cloned. What do you say about that Ryan Stern, and Austin boy Vince Mahan.
Texas booster Red McCombs upset over Charlie Strong hire
I think Red McCombs is racist and *** He can't get what he want, I know he donate millions of dollars to Texas but he can't accept this Charlie Strong to be our Head Coach. I think it's good hire like everyone does. He deserved after 30 years of assistant coach jobs and he also proved Louisville football program growth. As for him to be in Texas, he will have better players and better conference in Big 12. It's all good! Hook'em, Strong & Co.
Dear Red McCombs, Kindly keep your racist opinions to yourself. Charlie Strong would be "a fine position coach"? Just shut up.
A new era in Texas Football officially began Monday when the Longhorns introduced new Head Coach Charlie Strong.
Red McCombs continues to rip the Texas Longhorns' hire of Charlie Strong. He thinks Jon Gruden would have won five titles in 15 years.
Louisville fans better rally in front of Charlie Strong house like they did for coach Boone on Remember The Titans
LOS ANGELES (Jan. 7, 2014) -- With the University of Texas hiring Charlie Strong as its next football coach, Dan Hardy focuses attention on whether the historic move should soothe concerns about the lack of minority coaches on the sidelines in college sports. His talk-radio show, which made its national debut from Los Angeles on Nov. 7, will also provide thought-provoking commentary this week on whether politically and socially aware superstar African-American athletes of boxing legend Muhammad Ali's era are now extinct. In addition, listeners will hear the personal story of a high school phenom whose chance to play professional sports was ruined by such indiscretions as "hanging with the.wrong crowd." Tune in Thursdays 8:30 pm (Eastern Standard Time) to "The Dan Hardy Show" at: Talk 2 me Sports Radio with Daniel Hardy For more information, call: (626) 379-8207 or email: danthardy
Red McCombs is an *** His UT arrogance keeps him from seeing that even though Texas is traditionally one of the top 3 jobs for a coach, it's not there right now. John Gruden and Nick Saban obviously don't care for that job all that much. Name a coach better than Charlie Strong that the sips actually had a chance at?
New Texas coach Charlie Strong makes his Longhorn Network debut. He better get used to it.
I'm going to vent.I've seen some very disparaging remarks from Red McCombs and other Texas boosters who are dissatisfied with the choice of Charlie Strong as the new Head Coach of Texas. Red McCombs wanted John Gruden and there's not a chance in *** that Gruden, Harbaugh, Saban, Jimbo Fisher or any other top coach of that caliber would consider the Texas job. The BCS has been won by the SEC for 7 consecutive years and Jimbo Fisher designed his Florida State offense after the SEC to win. TEXAS needs to open their eyes and see that the "good ol boy" network isn't working. THE A&M Coach hangs out with Usher and lands in a helicopter to go watch recruits. The Baylor coach was a good choice but didn't want to interview so SUPPORT CHARLIE STRONG AND BE THRILLED HE HAS ROOTS IN FLORIDA TO GO GET SOME RECRUITS IN FLORIDA WHERE THEY ARE GROOMED TO WIN FROM JUNIOR HIGH TO ADD TO THE TEXAS KIDS THAT MIGHT LIKE HIM TOO. FIND BIG SMART KIDS!! Loved Mac but you cant' coddle these kids any more. Vince was a total bust . ...
If Louisville fans have such a moral/loyalty issue with Petrino being considered for the UofL job then I'd like you have the same judgement when it comes to: Chane Behanan, Rick Pitino, Michael Dyer, Charlie Strong, T Will, Anthony Allen, Derek Character and anyone else who has obviously never made mistakes you have made. Obviously we're all perfect and unworthy of redemption
As for Charlie Strong: For those wondering how successful he'll be as the new coach at Texas, I said let's give the man a chance and I stand by that. In four years at Louisville, the man was 37-15, went to a bowl game all four years, won three of them and finished his last two seasons 11-2 and 12-1. No one is questioning his abilities as a coach; just whether he'll be able to survive because he's all about football and not the politicking that comes along with the job. It was at that time that I reminded on ESPN First Take that there's a difference in corporate America between White and Black Folks: White Folks come to work with a job to do. Black Folks come with a responsibility. It's Black Folks who are constantly implored to give a voice to the voiceless. Who constantly are reminded of their responsibilities to speak up and tackle issues for a group of folks devoid of a voice to do so themselves. The thing is, that responsibility is too much for folks sometimes. Some folks want no part of it. They just ...
Happy New Year everybody. Just finished watching Jameis Winston and Florida State beat Auburn for the National Championship. I'm right again over my man (Ha). But what a great game. Maybe the best Nat'l Title Game I've seen since Vince Young and Texas beat Reggie Bush and USC. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, I feel the need to reiterate a couple of points I made on ESPN First Take this morning regarding Cincinnati Bengals Coach Marvin Lewis and Lousiville Coach, Charlie Strong. Marvin Lewis: I hope no one expected me to apologize for saying Lewis needs to go because I'm not about to. For one, the man has been to the playoffs just 5 times in 11 years. Secondly, at no time has he ever -- and I do mean, EVER -- won a playoff game. Lastly, regardless of how much I root for African-American coaches to succeed, how in God's name can I legitimately say anything about the Jason Garrett's or Mike Shanahan's of the world and give Lewis a pass when he's suffered similar results, but has done so over the c ...
