Texas AD Mike Perrin Says Charlie Strong Will Be Evaluated After TCU Game Amid Reports That He Will Be Fired

Charlie Strong will coach Texas' final game against TCU. AD Mike Perrin says he will be evaluated after the season, amid reports that the decision to fire Strong has already come.

ESPN's Mark Schlabach posted the statement from Perrin to Twitter.

The decision to keep Strong on goes along with a recent ESPN report, which said that he will stay through this final game. However, ESPN's Brett McMurphy is one of a number of college football insiders reporting that the decision to fire Strong has already come.

Strong will coach the Longhorns' final regular season game Friday against TCU before stepping down. He's 16-20 in three seasons at Texas and 12-14 in Big 12 play. His final game will clinch either a bowl bid or his third seven-loss season.

Austin American-Statesmancolumnist Kirk Bohls was the first to report that the decision to let Strong go had already come. According to Schlabach, Strong has not been informed that any decision has come down about his job status.

It is unclear how Texas will handle things if Strong and the Longhorns beat the Horned Frogs and become bowl eligible. By all accounts, however, that will be his final game as Texas head coach.
