The University of Texas has still yet to officially hire Charlie Strong as their next head coach, so this GIF from LSU Freak comes a bit premature – but that doesn’t make it any less hilarious.

Strong, who reportedly was set to accept to a five year, $25 million dollar deal with the Texas Longhorns on Friday night has reportedly not accepted the offer and is currently meeting with Louisville staff.

As of this point, we don’t know what to believe regarding Strong’s eventual destination but it’s clear LSU Freak feels (or at least felt) Strong was going to make his way to the University of Texas and created this amazing GIF which is set to the hilarious 1974 film, ‘Blazzing Saddles’.

The GIF begins with Strong riding into town on his horse while the mass of fans await the arrival of Jim Harbaugh. Quickly realizing it’s not Harbaugh mounted on the horse, the welcome banner for the San Francisco 49ers head coach is rolled up and the fans look on in shock as a smugly smiling Strong makes his appearance in town – an ode to the ‘New Sheriff’ scene from the film.

Epic.

Here’s the original scene if you’ve never seen the movie:
