The news comes after an inexplicable loss to Kansas, who had not won a Big 12 game in two years and had previously only beaten Rhode Island on the season. Strong amassed a 16-20 record in three years as the coach of the Longhorns and had been on the hot seat for quite some time. The loss to Kansas could certainly be construed as the straw that broke the camels back for the embattled head coach.
