My point? They aren't going to get their first, second, or third choice now,though they will claim they are once the hire is made.
They may, apparently they still have someone(s) they want to talk to and are patiently waiting. Who is left that they would be patiently waiting for? Fisher and Malzhan. If they had given Texas a definite NO THANKS #2 would've already been hired. My gut says it's Fisher and that he's interested and that's why Texas is playing the waiting game.

Problem is that PSU and Miami jobs are open. And if they wait and those top guys decide to stay, they may lose choice 5 or 6 and be left with worse options.

I still find it highly unlikely that Fisher or Saban would sign a new deal with the intent of leaving right after.

It will be interesting to watch regardless. As will the meltdown if Texas waits and ends up not getting their splash guy and the other guys they want sign on elsewhere.

Thought I'd share some info that was sent my way via a UT website.

Quote:
1. I communicated with two people tonight that believe that Texas has decided on who the next coach will be.

2. A source with Louisville ties informs that Charlie Strong believes he's getting the job. Obviously, if we had that confirmed we would report it and we're working non-stop to confirm everything that we can.
Quote:
FYI...info jibes with Louisville 247 site as well (they think Strong is gone). Looks like multiple sites are hearing the same thing

I don't think Strong would be Texas' first choice but he's certainly not a bad one.

I wish the other university in Texas good luck. There's nothing holding us together (sports-wise, academics is a different story) anymore. The only thing we compete for together is recruits.

Also, I dislike Tech in sports more than UT, so as long as Tech gets beat we're all happy, right?

Chip Brown ‏@ChipBrownOB 14m

Louisville coach Charlie Strong will replace Mack Brown as the head coach at Texas, according to a high-ranking UT source

Bruce Feldman ‏@BFeldmanCBS 8m

Was just told by a source that #Texas has not made any decision on its head coach. The group is still meeting.

Brian Davis ‏@BDavisAAS 35s

High-ranking UT source says Louisville's Charlie Strong has been offered #Texas job and appears ready to accept. @statesman

Texas will hire Louisville coach Charlie Strong, reports Bobby Burton of Horns247.

Texas athletic director Steve Patterson appeared to target Strong after whiffing on Nick Saban. Patterson was also known to have interviewed Vanderbilt's James Franklin, but it appears that the Commodores' coach finished runner-up.

Yahoo Sports columnist Pat Forde wrote in a column Friday that Strong was "the absolute worst fit for the job" because "he wants to be left alone. That wouldn't fly at Longhorn Network University. If he's hired, you're free to wonder whether the people involved with the search asked the right questions and got the right answers."

interesting because Franklin has reputation as a networker (like Mack) and strong reputation is something other than that.

Best coach available is more important than best press representative. Strong fulfills that over Franklin. You lose some in the recruiting area but Texas needs an X and O guy more right now.

Mack was the gold standard anytime there was a microphone in front of his face. Never a better ambassador or fund raiser. IMHO I don't think it matters who they hire I'm not sure anyone can meet those standards. There will be complainers and haters regardless.

OK I'm done here for the night. Did my part in keeping board members as informed as I could about all things UT Coach, Bortles and Underclassmen.

Superb hire. Strong is supremely underrated by many. That pro offense with 4 star recruits will be nasty. Texas will be relevant again quite soon.

I hope you're right. Atleast with Strong the offense should be much improved. Hopefully recruiting will rebound. I heard that Strong is a great recruiter.

I was a Briles guy. He has inroads with all of the HS coaches.

Don't get me started, Briles IS Texas football. He has spent a good amount of time building up Baylor, and I feel strongly that with another lesson learned and one more year of experience that program will vie for the championship next year. Hard to walk away from that.

Watch that Texas QB Ash moving forward, Strong could turn him into a star if the kid has enough IQ to handle the system.

Offense? Strong is a defensive guy, so I don't know why the offense would be what would benefit from the hire. He's an excellent defensive coach though and he is a great recruiter with strong ties in South Florida. He is one of the most effective recruiters in the South Florida area, which is great for Texas. I think Strong should have been retained at Florida, only promoted to HC, Florida really messed that situation up IMO.

Yeah, he was so good that A below average Case McCoy took his job from him like three separate times and ended up keeping it. Ash was never even supposed to be a starter at Texas in the first place. Ash won't be setting anything on fire.Lol!

Strong isn't an offensive guy and I doubt he's had much to do with Teddy's development there. He is a great recruiter though so if the deal does go through he will make some noise.

Yep,

But Strong's teams have had prolific offenses and OK defenses. Anything would be better than the current state of the Horns offense.

Goal #1 for Strong should be to find a top notch QB.
