    Patterson hired Strong. Vultures beginning to circle?

    I was more surprised that I missed that Shaka Smart was hired by Texas than the rest of the news that was talked about in that article.

    Not yet. Patterson had a ton of issues on his own. Strong will have to look better next year, though.

    If they hire Mack Brown as AD, all bets are off.

    Will work out great for Strong personally, IMO. Another school (Tennessee?) will pay him tons of money to come coach their team, while Texas will simultaneously be paying him Texas millions.

    At this point no one is gonna hold the turmoil going on in Texas against him.

    Charlie Strong has the rest of this year to fool around. Next year he's gone and it won't be to Tennessee. It'll be back to a coordinator's position where he belongs or maybe South Carolina after Spurrier retires which will be just as abysmal.

    Racist much? He's already proved he can be a successful Head coach.

    This. He has been there a year and he inherited a dumpster fire.

    It might not matter in Texas. Unless they show some signs, the dude is in trouble. I think he gets 1 more year for sure, but if they still look bad next year and don't win 9 games, he is 3 and out.

    If he could take Bridgewater with him everywhere he went, he would be a good coach.
