Dallas Morning News receives heat for Charlie Strong hip-hop coach line

Charlie Strong is the new head coach of the Texas Longhorns. What he’s not, however, is a “hip-hop coach.” Lou Holtz recently made that statement, and the Dallas Morning News ran with it in a tweet. The publication was sharing a recent story on things fans needed to know about Strong.

Following is the portion of the article that includes the reference to Strong as not being a “hip-hop coach” from Hotlz.

Strong has coached under coaches who had national championship credentials, including Lou Holtz, Steve Spurrier and Urban Meyer. Holtz hired Strong twice: at Notre Dame in 1995 and South Carolina in 1998.

“The thing that impressed me most was his attitude … his people skills and his ability to communicate,” Holtz told the Courtier-Journal. “I found as we went along that his greatest asset was common sense. He’s great with players … but he’s not a hip-hop coach. He really, truly could have coached for (Ohio State’s old-school taskmaster) Woody Hayes with no problem whatsoever.

The publication received some heat on Twitter for the “hip-hop” line, eventually clarifying where it came from.

ESPN writer Jason Whitlock backed the Dallas Morning News and Holtz’s original comment, saying that the description of Strong is accurate.
