The 53-year-old Strong clearly has some of the same pages from predecessor Mack Brown's playbook. He embraced the legacy of Texas's football tradition when he entered the room and hugged Edith Royal, the widow of former Longhorns coach Darrell Royal who won national titles in 1963 and 1969 and a share of a third in 1970.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Charlie Strong talked about being tough and winning championships. That is exactly what Texas fans wanted to hear from their new football coach.
Day by day, Alzheimer's disease is robbing Edith Royal of her beloved husband Darrell.
"I'm hoping that Darrell's fans will be the ones that purchase the UT things and they will treasure them like we have. I love the memories _ it was fun to rediscover them," she said.
"When he left Darrell that day, I'm told he had tears in his eyes," she said.
