Texas Introduces Coach Charlie Strong

Updated: Monday, January 6 2014, 06:43 PM CST

The University of Texas' new head coach Charlie Strong received a warm Texas welcome on a cold Monday afternoon in Austin.

Traditionally, Strong breaks the mold. He becomes the first African-American head coach of any men's sport in Texas history.

"I don't ever want to look at is as I'm a first," Strong said. "I want to look at it as I'm a coach and that's the way I wanted to be treated."

President Bill Powers said out of all the candidates who were considered, Strong was his first choice to take over the program.

"We got the right person," Powers said. "Character, toughness, and everything you look for in a coach. It is a very historic day."

It was historic because the numbers do not lie. Out of the 125 Division I football coaches, 12 are African-American.

"What you need to think about is all the African-American coaches that you are representing right now who did not get the chance that you're getting and that's all that needed to be said," Strong said.

In the end, it is not race that makes or breaks coaches; instead it is wins and losses.

"It's all about championships at the end," Strong said.

In only four years as head coach, Strong has proven himself worthy of running a major college football program. He transformed Louisville into the powerhouse that it is today, and he said while he is at UT he plans to build on the premier program that Mack Brown is leaving behind.

"I want our players to understand this; you're here to get a degree. When you get a degree you will always have options in life," Strong said. "Number two; let's go win football games lets go win championships. Number three; I want to make sure [players] leave here a better person when they came into this university."
