With all the talk of assistant coaches moving to and fro the last few days, it might be useful to take note that new Texas coach Charlie Strong finalized his staff on Tuesday.
The staff, as introduced to the media, is as follows:
Joe Wickline, offensive coordinator/offensive line
Shawn Watson, assistant head coach/quarterbacks
Tommie Robinson, running backs
Les Koenning, wide receivers
Bruce Chambers, tight ends
Vance Bedford, defensive coordinator/defensive backs
Chris Rumph, assistant head coach/defensive line
Brian Jean-Mary, linebackers/recruiting coordinator
Chris Vaughn, defensive backs/special teams
Chambers is the only hold-out from the Mack Brown era. Wickline will be the play caller, per Strong, which is interesting since Wickline hasn’t called plays since working at Delta State from 1984-1987.
