Wikipedia: Charlie Strong
Charles R. Strong (born August 2, 1960) is currently an American football head coach for the University of Texas Longhorns. Strong is a graduate of the University of Central Arkansas, where he was a football player from 1980-1983. Strong held numerous assistant coaching jobs before becoming the head coach of the Louisville Cardinals in 2010. During his four year stint, he led the Cardinals to a 37–15 record, ending each season with a bowl game. On January 5, 2014, Louisville Athletic Director Tom Jurich announced that Strong would be leaving Louisville to become the next head coach at Texas.

Wikipedia: Texas Longhorns
Texas Longhorns athletics programs include the extramural and intramural sports teams of the University of Texas at Austin. These teams are referred to as the Texas Longhorns (or variously as Longhorns or ‘Horns), taking their name from the Longhorn cattle that were an important part of the development of Texas, and are now the official “large animal” of the US State of Texas. The University of Texas at Austin is the apparent flagship institution of the University of Texas System. The women’s teams are sometimes called the Lady Longhorns, but generally both the men’s and women’s teams are referred to as the Longhorns, and the mascot is a Texas Longhorn steer named Bevo.

The Longhorn nickname appeared in Texas newspapers by 1900.
