Charlie Strong, Lou Holtz and the Tennessee Job Opening

1

C.L. Brown takes to his blog to reveal a little of Charlie's conversation with his old mentor. As a part of the Courier Journal's blog content, it isn't subscription only nor does it count toward the monthly allowance of "free" articles. I suppose that is why it isn't too long or elaborate, but still, it is cool to see. This post makes it seem that Charlie didn't really have any intention of leaving, but was rather, just trying to weight his options carefully to have a clear conscious about his decision no matter which way he went. One thing not mentioned is at which point in the process this conversation with Holtz actually happened. It would be nice to know how far before he announced his decision to stay this phone conversation took place. I don't know if that would really tell us anything, but its hard not to wonder about.
