Red McCombs doesn't believe Charlie Strong is the right hire for the University of Texas longhorns football program.
I understand all the anger towards this Billionaire, but it is his opinion and apparently he has earned the right to it by gifting (according to reports) an estimated 100 million dollars to the University of Texas.
Is this about race? it may be, I understand many people from his generation hold very strong opinions about having blacks hold important positions.
The African American Charlie Strong is the Texas longhorn football coach , period, that is not going to change unless he starts loosing.
If Mr. Strong starts to win and gets them a national championship no one in Texas will give a dam what ANYBODY said about the first black coach in Texas Longhorn history.
If Mr. McCombs statement was race based, so what, as always, all thing will pass and so will bigotry.
This brings to mind the best quote in the history of sports. Remember Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis? "JUST WIN BABY"
That is all Charlie Strong has to do.
