University of Texas Head Coach Charlie Strong has been Public Enemy #1 for many in Austin after losing 14 games since he was hired in 2014. After Texas outlasted Notre Dame in the “Game of the Century of the Week”, the scores of impatient Texas fans who had been calling for his head were conspicuously silent.
The instant classic was a signature win for Strong, who appears to have finally turned the NFL talent deficient roster he inherited from Mack Brown into a competitive national program again. In our microwave society that wants results yesterday, Strong looks to be a shining example of the virtue of patience.
When Strong joined The Herd today, he talked about the importance establishing trust, which doesn’t happen overnight.
“You’ve got to develop that relationship, it’s all about trust. I always tell them. You know what? I’ve traveled your road. I understand what you’re going through. But, if you ever need to talk, give me a call. I give them my number. I text them all the time, but I just want them to know I really care about them.”
One win does not a season make, but anyone who watched the Horns gore the Irish can clearly see that Chuck Strong finally has Texas on the track back to national relevance.
