In Charlie Strong’s seven months at Texas, he has worked hard to establish a new identity for his team. A part of that identity is building chemistry among the team and with the new coaching staff.

According to OrangeBloods.com, to bring the bond between the team and the coaching staff even closer, Strong and his assistants have been living in on-campus dorms with the team throughout preseason camp.

Strong explained his reasoning behind the decision.

Strong said that once the fall semester begins, players will go off in their separate ways, but for now, the Longhorns will stick with the dorms to build camaraderie.

“The great thing about it, our players see us there so they know that the coaches are doing it,” Strong said. “It speaks a lot for the coaches and their relationships (with players) also.”

Strong is just 23 days away from his Texas coaching debut with the Longhorns take on North Texas at home on August 30.
