Strong, who coached Louisville from 2010-2013, was reported to have been subpoenaed yesterday as a “critical witness” in the Blues’ divorce case. Allegedly, he has text messages and a history of correspondence between himself and Mr. Blue’s former wife Tracy. These messages allege that Tracy’s behavior makes her an unfit parent to her and Jonathan Blue’s two teenage daughters, and Strong is needed to corroborate the story.
But it appears that no court order for Strong’s testimony has yet been issued, so it appears he’ll be staying in Austin and continuing to help rebuild the Longhorns for now. And hopefully it stays that way, because the last thing that this program needs is a serious distraction.
