Charlie Strong's 1st day as the Texas Longhorns football coach was all about addressing the media, UT dignitaires, former Longhorn players and coaches.

We learned that the former Louisville Cardinals head coach has ties to former Longhorn head coach Fred Akers.

Both are from communities in Arkansas. In fact, Strong spent his summers in Luxora, Arkansas  which was less than 20 miles from Akers' hometown, Blytheville, Arkansas.
