There may be no football on the 40 Acres in May, but that doesn’t mean UT coaches are catching up on the new Game of Thrones season or chiming in on the Prop 1 vote.
Some of the coaches spent last week on social media engaging their followers. Here’s what they had to say:
Head coach Charlie Strong kicked off the week noting Sunday’s holiday:
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Have a special day!

This weekend, it also looks like he hosted one of the state’s top recruits with an unofficial visit from the Statesman No. 2 recruit Kennedale linebacker Baron Browning:
