After weeks of will they or won’t they, Texas will have an official decision to make after Saturday’s season-finale against TCU.
With a win over TCU, Strong could reportedly save his job. Otherwise, reports are circulating that if Houston’s Tom Herman is off the table, the Longhorns could target an unlikely name — ESPN analyst Jon Gruden:
If Texas does can Strong, they’d need to counter with a big hire and Gruden certainly constitutes as that.
Gruden spent 11 years as an NFL head coach, compiling a 95-81 record with one Super Bowl title (2002 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers).
Gruden has previously called the University of Tennessee a dream job, but we’d imagine the Texas gig could rank pretty high up there.
