Charlie Strong’s first few months at the University of Texas appear to be going well. His new team is currently conducting their annual spring session and Strong seems to be pleased with what he’s seen from his guys. He’ll ultimately be judged on how many wins he gets in his debut season, but all in all, Strong seems to be fitting nicely thus far.
Before asking Mack Brown to step down, the Longhorn program went through a few mediocre seasons, which isn’t acceptable in Austin. In state rival Texas A&M’s success certainly didn’t make matters any better for Coach Brown.
While the fans appear to be on board with Strong at this point, former Texas A&M star Johnny Manziel apparently has some beef with Charlie.
The 2013 Heisman Trophy winner posted the following picture on Instagram of Coach Strong. In the caption for the picture, Manziel says, “Sorry Charlie…you’re not a part of the regime #SawEmOff.”
