Is Charlie Strong's job in jeopardy after his team's loss to Oklahoma State?
When Texas beat Notre Dame to kick off its 2016 season, many proclaimed that the Longhorns were back - and that head coach Charlie Strong could breathe a sigh of relief regarding his job security. But as we head into October, a great deal has changed.
Texas, after starting 2-0, is now 2-2 after losses to Cal and Oklahoma State. Furthermore, the team's defense has looked atrocious.
Following today's contest, which Texas lost 49-31, Texas AD Mike Perrin was asked by Rivals writer Anwar Richardson about Strong's future. Perrin's response won't make Strong's advocates feel very confident.
Mike Finger of the SA Express-News asked Strong about the quote. He offered somewhat of a generic statement on the matter.
Strong, who is entering his third year as the Longhorns' head coach, has an overall record of 13-16. If he isn't able to turn things around soon, he could be looking for a new gig come 2017. After all, the Tom Herman sweepstakes is officially on after LSU's firing of Les Miles last week.
