Strong visits El Paso on 'Longhorns Coming on Strong' Tour
El Paso, TX — Charlie Strong needs a strong will and patience to be the Texas Longhorns head football coach, and he's learning that on a statewide tour which brought the coach to El Paso on Monday, May 12. Strong will visit nearly a dozen cities talking about Texas football and where the program is. Strong, after spending four years as head coach at Louisville, took over for Mack Brown after the 2013 season.
"I thought an iconic Coach Brown did a great job and the only thing I need to do is build on what he's done and I don't know how big the challenge is going to be, it's always when you take over a program there's challenges. It's nothing but a great place for me, just the enthusiasm and I want them to know what's going on with the program and how everythings going within the program because they wonder how the spring practice went, how the winter conditioning went, they just want to know what the plans are for the summer."
Strong plans to visit Midland Tuesday, May 13 and then Amarillo on Wednesday, May 14.
