Golden, on Texas’ newest Charlie: Good hire, Strong

Posted February 15th, 2016

Another day, another new Texas assistant football coach.

Charlie Williams was in Indianapolis for the end of the Reggie Wayne era and the rise to prominence of quarterback Andrew Luck and that of the team’s most dangerous receiving weapon, T.Y. Hilton, who averaged 77 catches for 1,184 yards and five touchdowns in his last three seasons.

The hope has to be that Williams will develop guys like Armanti Foreman and Lorenzo Joe, who combined for only 15 catches for 255 yards as sophomores. John Burt is already on the right track as far as becoming an all-conference receiver on a crew that I could see being bolstered by the addition of 6-5, 205-pound freshman wideout Collin Johnson, the son of former Texas All-American Johnnie Johnson.

We all know the wideouts will only be as good as the guy throwing them the ball, but Williams is a quality hire for Charlie Strong. The receivers will hang on his every word because he’s been in locker rooms they can only dream about at this point.
