Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong won’t have to testify in the divorce case of Louisville Board of Trustees member Jonathan Blue, according to a report from Andrew Wolfson of The Courier-Journal.
Per Wolfson’s report, a settlement has been reached in the case of Blue and his ex-wife, Tracy. The former Mrs. Blue was accused of having an affair with Strong, who coached the Cardinals from 2010-2013, and it was reported last weekend that Strong could be subpoenaed so as to discuss and turn over any history of correspondence between himself and Tracy. Now, it appears that won’t happen.
“I’m not party to their divorce and have received no court order in this case,” Strong said in a statement released over the weekend. “I certainly respect the legal system, and if I do receive a court order, I will review it and respond then. Since this is a legal case, it wouldn’t be appropriate for me to say anything further at this time.”
The good news is that with the case settled, Strong can get back to the more important task at hand in rebuilding the Longhorns’ football program. He has gone 11-14 (9-9 Big 12) in two years in Austin and has a key recruiting class coming in for the 2016 season.
With this case resolved, here’s hoping he can now focus on making Texas football great again.
