Charlie Strong: Texas boosters always just a phone call away
ABC News - 4 months
AUSTIN, Texas -- With reports swirling that Texas power brokers may be moving to oust him after this season, Longhorns coach Charlie Strong says he's heard the rumblings and is engaged -- as always -- with the principal boosters. "I know the guys to keep in touch with, and I do," Strong told ESPN.com on Monday. "They've been great and always want to know if there's anything they can do to help. Now, I don't go to dinner with those guys, so I'm not going to be seen in public with them. I'm not a member of their country club and I don't play golf, so I don't go play golf with them. But I pick up the phone and call them, keep in touch." Strong, in his third season at Texas, is 13-17 in his first 30 games. The Longhorns are 2-3 after their third straight loss Saturday, a 45-40 defeat to the rival Oklahoma Sooners. All the while, just down the road, Houston's Tom Herman is the name many are floating as a potential replacement for Strong. .
