Is Charlie Strong's Job In Jeopardy After Loss To Oklahoma State?

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.
