Texas Has Reportedly Decided To Fire Charlie Strong

Charlie Strong is going to be fired.

Texas' administration has reportedly made a decision to fire head football coach Charlie Strong, according to the Austin-American Statesman.

Brian Davis and Kirk Bohls report that Longhorn officials have decided to fire Strong and it's now just a matter of "when," not if.

From their report:

University of Texas officials have decided to fire football coach Charlie Strong, however the official announcement may not come until Monday, a high-ranking university source told the American-Statesman.

The decision comes after Saturday’s shocking 24-21 overtime loss to Kansas, a team that had lost 19 straight Big 12 games.

“It will happen for sure. The question is when,” the source said.

Strong is scheduled to meet with the media on Monday morning. An official announcement from the school could potentially come before then.

The 56-year-old head coach has been leading Texas' program since 2014. The Longhorns are 5-6 this season and 16-20 overall under Strong.
