McCombs and his Giant mess
San Antonio — Red McCombs is straight from central casting. Put him next to Longhorn cattle on a few million acres, with his booming voice and drawl, and he’s Bick Benedict from “Giant.”
This week he played the role, with all of its stereotypes, in real life. Asked about Texas hiring Charlie Strong, he told Dat Nguyen and Jason Minnix on KZDC-AM:
“I don’t have any doubt Charlie is a fine coach. I think he’d probably make a fine position coach, maybe a coordinator.”
It is an absurd opinion.
