ESPN quotes Charlie Strong: Texas will be 10-win team in 2017, ‘no matter who’s coaching’

Posted October 29th, 2016


ESPN announcer Steve Levy shared an interesting quote from Charlie Strong on Saturday’s broadcast of Texas versus Baylor.

Speaking with Strong earlier in the week, Levy said the Longhorns coach told the broadcast team, “no matter who’s coaching Texas next year they’re going to be a 10-win team.”

Strong has come under fire as Texas started the season 3-4 and the Longhorns have yet to win away from Royal-Memorial Stadium in 2016. There’s no denying the Longhorns have talent, but that talent hasn’t translated to wins during Strong’s tenure on the 40 Acres.
