Head Football Coach Charlie Strong was fired from the University of Texas Saturday with a record of 16-21 in his three seasons with the school.
As reported by USA TODAY, the decision came after the Longhorns concluded their season with a 31-9 home loss to Texas Christian University.
“After thorough evaluation, the body of work over three season has not shown the improvement we were hoping for,” Longhorns Athletics Director Mike Perrin said in a statement. “This was an important year for our program to take the next step, and the results simply aren’t there… we’ve decided to make a change.”
Strong released a statement in which he said he understands the university’s decision.
