Former Texas football coaches Charlie Strong and Mack Brown crossed paths this week in Florida and flashed a very familiar hand sign.
On Thursday afternoon, Brown, who has joined ESPN as a college football analyst since leaving the Longhorns, was at the USF facilities preparing for Friday night’s game on The Worldwide Leader against Illinois.
When Brown was making his way around the hallways, he ran into Strong, who is now head coach of the Bulls.
That’s when the two men came together for a photo and flashed the “Hook ’em Horns” hand sign. To be fair, the “Hook ’em” hand sign is the same one USF uses, so Strong doesn’t have to take any heat for showing support for a former team.
Kickoff between the Bulls and Fighting Illini at Raymond James Stadium is set for 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPN. Strong will be looking to get No. 22 USF off to a 3-0 start this season.
