Texas Alum Jermichael Finley Thinks Charlie Strong Will Be "Gone" If Team Doesn't Start Winning

Texas head coach Charlie Strong is only currently in the midst of his second season in Austin, but after the Longhorns' embarrassing 38-3 loss to Notre Dame on Saturday night, Texas fans - and apparently former players - are starting to wonder if he's the right man for the job. Sunday afternoon, Jermichael Finley, who starred for the program at tight end from 2005 to 2008 and later played for the Green Bay Packers, took to Twitter to express his frustration with the Longhorns. He thinks that Strong will be "gone" if he doesn't turn it around soon.
