It has been nearly a week since Charlie Strong accepted the head-coaching position for the Texas Longhorns, and already we are seeing what may or may not become of Strong's tenure in Austin.
Strong's hiring has been met with mixed feelings, the most notable instance of that coming from Texas booster Red McCombs. But Strong handled the early criticism with about as much class and professionalism as one could expect, and he made it clear what kind of head coach the Longhorns are getting.
Every coach has his strengths, but they do not come without some chinks in the armor. Coach Strong's strengths can help bring the Texas program back to basics, but it will miss a few particular qualities from seasons past.
