Default Re: Texas booster Red McCombs bashes Charlie Strong Hire

Strong was a MAJOR WHIFF for Texas...that said, there really isn't a "sexy" hire out there.

Strong was a good DC and he had a coupe hot years in a GARBAGE conference....WVu dominated it and look what happened when they hit the Big12.

not saying he isn't good, but with such a major college program....steeeeeeeeriiiiike,.

Im curious to see who people think would have been better hire. So if Charlie is a bad hire, then who? Get out of here with the Saban, or Gruden, or Belichick, or Lombardi BS, cause we all know those werent going to happen.

Im talking a legitimate candidate. Who is the home run hire? Its not like Strong has been around a bunch of Scrubs during his coaching tenure in the SEC before someone finally offered him a Head Coaching gig. Its not like he was a bust at Louisville.

..And coming off of a BCS win, the only team they lost to this year was #10 UCF by 3 points, a team we only beat by 3 points. The winner of the Athletic Conference could've beaten every team in the Big 12 this year and everyone in the ACC minus FSU.

They went out and got Mack Brown from North Carolina where he was 18-6, winning 75% of his games in his last two seasons ('97-'98).

The problem for Strong is that The Texas head coach is not about coaching. It is about shaking hands and kissing boosters asses. It is about being a figurehead and putting together a great staff. These are things that are not Strong's best points. He may actually be to good of a coach to be at Texas as the head coach.

If thing go south, he may not have the charisma to survive as Mack Brown did.

Yes, right here.

A problem with Texas is that you have lots of boosters with lots of money each with an opinion and most thinking that they could get anyone they wanted. No matter who got hired, someone with money would be found that didn't like the hire.

There was an article a while back about Hoitz and McGee working with Strong when he was here on his interview skills, because they were lacking. He is going to have a difficult time (as any coach would) dealing with all of the politics that go on with that position. But the bottom line is still winning. If he wins, he is ok. If he doesn't win, can he backslap enough to hang around?

Default Texas booster Red McCombs bashes Charlie Strong Hire

What a great way to talk about a man who was nothing but professional while here at USC.

If Spurrier was to leave tomorrow I'd take Strong. He gave coach Spurrier more praise than Holtz & Urban in his press conference the other day. I hope strong puts all you naysayers to bed and wins big this year.

I agree. I'd take Strong over any of the current coaches that we have in staff. If Strong had been the DC the last 3 years, we'd have won the east at least once. No way we'd have been beat like we were this year by UGA.

I was really hoping Charlie stayed at Louisville for a few more years and then made the jump back to Carolina when the HBC retired. Could still happen though if he does well enough at Texas to stick around, but gets sick of the good ole boy politics.
