Tyler (KETK) — The Coming on Strong Tour of Texas came to East Texas Thursday.
Charlie Strong made the fourth stop of his statewide tour in Tyler.
The new football coach of the Longhorns is introducing himself to Texas fans in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, El Paso, Midland/Odessa, Amarillo, Beaumont and the Rio Grande Valley.
KETK's Phil Kuchinsky asked Strong about recruiting players from East Texas.
"It's an unbelievable region," Strong said. "You like how hard they're going to work."
"This is a region we need to get into," Strong added. "It's an area we need to dip into a little better than what we're doing."
