I'd be ok with Charlie Strong over Doeren. I'd take Charlie Brown over Doeren too.
I believe that Charlie Strong is a good coach, but how in his third year does he lose to Kansas, especially this Kansas team?
it was over long before that game. my guess would be staff was looking for new jobs instead of game planning.
Mack Brown left that team in a terrible, terrible state. He hadn't developed players in five years. Strong had to kick something like 20 guys off the team in the first year. Combine that with the rise of Baylor and Texas A&M's return to form and Texas was back to where they were in the 90s. Also, the move of ATM to the SEC really has rejiggered recruiting in Texas. So yeah, it was bad and he hired a bad staff and clearly never had a plan for the offense but Strong was in a terrible situation. I mean, Texas has had three athletic directors and two presidents during Strong's tenure. Brown had one of each, and even though Mack was the consummate politician, Deloss Dodds kept all of those crazy fucking Texas Exes in check and let Mack lose a bunch of big games to the best team in the Big XII, as well as OSU and ATM.
Doesn't matter who they hire, Texas still has two or three years to get back to where they need to be.
