Charlie Strong aims to put Longhorns ‘back on the national stage’
Strong also acknowledged this historical significance behind him taking the job: He is the first African-American head coach of a men’s sport at Texas.
Strong did not want to reveal which assistants he planned to bring from Louisville or who else he would hire from for his staff.
Strong said he doesn’t feel any special pressure taking over a program that boasts the nation’s wealthiest athletic department, its own television network and annual expectations of winning conference and national championships.
While Strong spoke, the football stadium’s giant scoreboard displayed a huge picture of Strong cheering with a clenched fist raised in the air, a shot from his Louisville days with his Cardinals red shirt now tinted burnt orange.
“When you’re not prepared, yeah, there’s pressure,” Strong said. “If you surround yourself with the right people, it’s not pressure.”
