There is no secret that Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong has been on the hotseat throughout his tenure in Austin. Now, with the Longhorns sitting at 5-5 with two games remaining on the schedule, it appears as though he is coaching for his job.
According to Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News, Strong will be let go if the Longhorns finish with a .500 record.
If Texas ends the year with wins over Kansas and TCU to advance to 7-5, Strong could keep his job. To be frank, if Texas can’t beat those two teams, Strong probably isn’t the man for the job.
During his tenure with the Longhorns, Strong has a lackluster 16-19 record.
Strong’s march to retain his job begins on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET when the Longhorns hit the road to take on Kansas.
Kickoff is set for noon ET at Kivisto Field at Memorial Stadium.
