Longtime booster Red McCombs is not a fan of Texas‘ decision to hire coach Charlie Strong away from Louisville, calling it a “kick in the face” during a radio interview Monday.

“I think the whole thing is a bit sideways,” McCombs said of the selection process during an interview with ESPN 1250 San Antonio. “I don’t have any doubt that Charlie is a fine coach. I think he would make a great position coach, maybe a coordinator.

“But I don’t believe [he belongs at] what should be one of the three most powerful university programs in the world right now at UT-Austin. I don’t think it adds up.”

McCombs, the former owner of the San Antonio SpursDenver Nuggets and Minnesota Vikingsand co-founder of Clear Channel Communications, said on “The Blitz with Dat Nguyen and Jason Minnix” that he was stunned to learn Strong was the choice to replace Mack Brown.
