Texas players loved Charlie Strong. Strong loved his Longhorns players.
It’s no surprise that bond remains even after Strong was fired and Tom Herman was hired as his replacement, and it’s also no surprise Texas players were glad to hear that Strong got another job.
After it was announced that Strong had accepted the head coaching position at South Florida, the Longhorns — current and former– took to Twitter to congratulate their former leader.
Here are some of their reactions:
Gonna miss you coach strong, can't wait to see what you do in the future! https://t.co/a226fKDLeH
