The Longhorns opened training camp Thursday with the focus on last season’s starter, Tyrone Swoopes, and his battle for the job with redshirt freshman Jerrod Heard.
Coach Charlie Strong says Junior Tyrone Swoopes and redshirt freshman Jerrod Heard will be given ‘equal reps’ in their fight for the job.
With the emergence of quarterback Tyrone Swoopes as a dangerous run-pass threat, Texas has a more diversified offense under Charlie Strong. And that’s giving Kansas State coach Bill Snyder plenty of reason to worry.
Four starts into his career, Tyrone Swoopes is in need of a big lift, coming off a poor performance that sent the Longhorns into Saturday’s game against Oklahoma on a two-game skid.
Texas coach Charlie Strong said Monday quarterback David Ash is out indefinitely and that the Longhorns will push ahead with Tyrone Swoopes as the starting quarterback.
The Charlie Strong era began at Texas with a shaky performance at quarterback and few questions answered about just how quickly the Longhorns can rebound in the Big 12 under their new coach.
