Charlie Strong appears to be betting on himself to fix the embattled Texas defense.
The head coach has stripped defensive coordinator Vance Bedford of his play-calling duties, sources told Geoff Ketchum of Orangebloods.com on Sunday.
He definitely has his work cut out for him, though: Texas is allowing 38.3 points per game, ranking 116th out of 128 FBS programs.
The past two games have seen the Longhorns allow over 1,000 total yards and 99 points. With the explosive Oklahoma offense on deck in the Red River Rivalry this weekend, a quick fix was needed, and it appears Strong feels his leadership is the solution.
