AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Charlie Strong will be introduced as the new head football coach at Texas during a news conference on Monday. It's a historic move for Strong, who becomes the first black head coach of a men's program at Texas.
The Texas Longhorns paid tribute to former football coach Darrell Royal during their game against Iowa State on Saturday, running its first offensive play from the wishbone formation Royal introduced to major college football in 1968.
Off to a 3-0 start and rising in the national rankings, the No. 12 Texas Longhorns are settling into an off week feeling surprisingly good about quarterback David Ash and a bit unnerved by the defense's habit of giving up of big plays for touchdowns.
