ESPN Insider's Travis Haney wrote that Texas head coach Charlie Strong has not made a strong first impression on the school's fanbase.
Haney attended a three-day coaching clinic at Angelo State in which Strong made an awkward speech that cemented in many the idea that he's a poor fit as Longhorns' coach. The argument seems to be that UT's coach must be an extrovert -- like Mack Brown -- and mustn't share Strong's introverted nature. "I think everyone was shocked. It was that bad," one coach said of Strong's speech. "It made me miss Mack," another joked, while a third stated: "If I was the coach at Texas, I would act like I had bigger balls than that." Haney crushed Strong for his cliché-ridden language, which is the wont of gold-fingered journalists. Strong is smart enough to understand that all this nonsense about his ability to communicate with boosters and impress the media with his diction will go away when he wins. Gregg Popovich and Bill Belichick were lambasted early in their careers for being standoffish. Nobody seems to care anymore. Jun 28 - 6:43 PM
