New UT football coach Charlie Strong has stayed out of the spotlight this winter and spring, focusing on building his team and getting to know his staff. That changes on April 19, when he’ll begin a whirlwind tour of the Lone Star State.
The “Texas Comin’ On Strong Tour”—complete with a bus plastered with the coach’s punnable name—will stop in 12 cities over 30 days, UT announced yesterday. In addition to the coach, a slate of other big names—including president Bill Powers, men’s athletics director Steve Patterson, women’s athletics director Chris Plonsky, and several to-be-announced alumni and letterwinners—will make appearances at some of the stops.
Tickets for the tour are $15 for adults and $8 for youth. They officially go on sale tomorrow, but Texas Exes members get first pick at 2 p.m. today (check your email for the members-only promo code).
