No more 'Hook'em Horns' for UT players

Posted: Updated:
AUSTIN, Texas -

University of Texas fans shouldn't be upset if their favorite college football team doesn't flash the traditional Hook'em Horns sign.

New head coach Charlie Strong said the players have to earn the right to show it.

"They'll get it back one of these days," he told ESPN's Max Olson.

Strong is trying to change the culture in the Longhorns' locker room. His motto for the year is "Putting the 'T' back in Texas" and he plans to focus on toughness, trust, togetherness and team.

He's also making players walk the half-mile to practice instead of riding the bus, sit in the front in class and walk around campus without headphones.

In exchange, he told them there's now an open-door policy in the football office.

Strong believes his players will do what he asks of them if he shows them he cares.
