Default Texas booster Red McCombs bashes Charlie Strong Hire

I couldn't believe the Audio when I heard it. This is why Texas is the most hated program in college football. The entitlement is sickening.

They act like the biggest NFL coaches and college coaches are going to drop everything they are doing and start duking it out because the job in Austin is open.

Personally I thought the Strong hire was very good, but apparently the some of the folks in Austin don't think so. We all know about Strong though, Red McCombs says he thinks that Charlie "would be a good position coach", and that the hire was "a kick in the face".

Im positive that 80% of their fan base, including this booster don't realize that Charlie is a proven commodity in the SEC with a decade worth of work. Charlie has earned everything he's gotten, and I hope he proves the ALL wrong. Im sure he will.

McCombs obviously has a problem with having a head coach that's so melanin-enriched. This has nothing to do with his abilities as a coach.

That was my thought.
Texas got a damn good coach in Strong...I expect them to be competing for national titles again very soon. NOt next year, but in three years, Texas will be back.

Default Re: Texas booster Red McCombs bashes Charlie Strong Hire

This guy is an idiot. If he and the boosters are so football savvy then he should know Strong has been a coordinator for over 10 years and a head coach for 4 years. So no he shouldn't be a position coach. I don't know if it is racism or what but this guy is a fool. The thing about Strong, is he has been screwed over by schools because of his race and then by others for being married to a white woman.

Strong earned the Texas job and I hope he shows this booster how dumb he is and then leaves Texas high and dry. It would make me so happy if he kick ass over the next 2 years and then ditched them for at he NFL or some other college job.

The real question is how far down the original list was Charlie. Maybe we have all over thought this Texas job.....with clowns like this, what makes this job so great.

Texas is about to start raking in number 1 recruiting classes. I would also wager a national title for Texas within 5 years.

Texsux has always had their pick of the litter for the most part. Coaching is where the problem has been. They have been a lot like Clemsux in that they get highly rated recruits but haven't coached them to make the most of their skills.

Hey, it's Texas. Amazing how rich alumni sometimes think their money and donations allow them to trump the decisions of people tasked with doing the job. Big ego owners of pro sports teams have often found their meddling to be counter-productive.

Funny how Mark Cuban realized that and the season he backed off, they won a world title.

Living in Texas I have realized how horrible the ego of any Texas fan is. They all, even the most casual of fans, believe that they are the best team every year and that they should win the title. They believe every player in the country wants to play at Texas and every coach would leave their job at the drop of a hat to coach there. It's laughable almost.

My husband and I got asked at a major Donor function- "How did u get invited?". Some donors are very down to earth, but some I just put in their place. Donate money and goods to help people, NOT for favors!

Coach Strong is going to be one hell of coach!

Basically what Red McCombs was saying is.

"I don't think a black man is fit to coach at UT, maybe a coordinator but not a coach."

i don't see it that way at all. He is just pissed that he wasn't consulted. He did hire Dennis Green in Minnesota making him the second NFL black coach. or I could be wrong maybe that was before him
