Alabama continues to be the place where coaches go to reinvent their careers and learn a thing or two from the best in the business and that’s where former Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong is heading.
This news was first reported by ESPN’s Chris Lowe:
Nobody has had more success bringing in former head coaches than Nick Saban, and he’s tapping back into that market with Charlie Strong, who has agreed to join the @AlabamaFTBL staff as a defensive analyst, sources tell ESPN. Strong had several opportunities to join SEC staffs.— Chris Low (@ClowESPN) February 18, 2020
Strong had a huge rise following his success at Louisville where he coached Teddy Bridgewater and went 23-3 in two years from 2012 to 2013. Then he came to Texas and finished a mediocre 16-21 while never having a winning season. After getting let go, he went to South Florida, where he had initial success, but went just 11-14 the past two seasons, including a 4-8 finish this past season.
Strong joins a long list of former head coaches to come through Saban’s program include Mike Locksley, Lane Kiffin, Major Applewhite and Butch Jones.
