ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit had some strong words regarding Texas football’s handling of coach Charlie Strong, regarding it as a “cesspool” and suggesting that nobody in their right mind would want the job at Texas.
Herbstreit mentions the firing of Mack Brown, who coached Texas for nine years prior to being replaced by Strong. He regards the culture at Texas as too volatile and advises that they let Strong “just coach.”

Coach Strong is on the hot seat heading into this weeks rivalry matchup between Texas and Oklahoma known as the Red River Showdown.
Strong is likely to be fired if he is unable to beat Oklahoma today; whether it be at the end of the season or later in the coming week. Surely, the pressure at Texas is unlike any other program in the country. Excellence is expected and the Longhorn faithful are not shy about voicing their disapproval when their expectations aren’t met.
Texas is 2-2 to start the season.
