Sucks for him. They expected to much out of him, and he was in over his head. I see him bouncing around a few more times as a coordinator before having a chance at the brass ring again.

Maybe he can go back to coaching under Urban (I'm sure a coach or two from his staff are going to be picked off this offseason).

The loss to Kansas was the moment of the death knell, whenever it actually happens officially.

There ought to be a warning label on social media.

stories may appear before they're actually true.

Mike Perrin fired him. Perrin is a lawyer who used to play football for UT. Before he was interim AD Mike and I had a case together that lasted for six years. I used to talk Texas football with him all the time, I was shocked when I learned he was named interim AD. I just had no idea he was that connected.

A finer guy you'll never meet. They made a good choice. Sounds like Mike had no real choice. Texas has not been Texas under Strong. They might be the 4th or 5th best team in the state right now. That's incredible.

Say what you want about Charlie Strong, you have to put him high up when you are talking about people with class.

There's no doubt he's good people. He was in a tough spot there and I'm not convinced he got a fair shake. He'll land on his feet somewhere.
