Dan Hawkins on Overtime: Is Charlie Strong Changing Culture at Texas?

On Friday’s edition of Overtime, ESPN College Football analyst Dan Hawkins joins Jeff Thurn. 

Hawkins is a former football coach at Boise State and Colorado.

How is Charlie Strong fitting in at Texas after coaching previously at Louisville? 

“I think it will be great. He is bringing a whole blue-collar mentality shaking it down and getting it back down to the roots. Obviously Texas has great resources and players. But at some point you have to get down to the brass tax of working, having a chip on your shoulder, and proving something. And I think he dismissed about five guys in the last 24 hours, so I think he’s sending a message to those guys you better show up, work, be a tough guy, get after it, and forget about all this entitlement of we are a great university and great football school.”
