New Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong is preparing to enter his first season in Austin, but he better not get too familiar with the practice facilities because they could be getting a facelift in the near future.

According to reports, the Longhorns are very interested in building a two-story, indoor practice facility because everything is bigger in Texas.

From Chip Brown of Orangebloods.com – the same man who broke the news of Mack Brown stepping down and the Charlie Strong hiring:

I’m hearing Texas is this close to building a new, two-story, indoor football practice facility. The money has already been raised. It would go up in the same place where the current practice bubble is located at Frank Denius Fields. There might be some issues with a state law that prohibits structures from blocking views of the Capitol building. I’m not kidding.

As we have seen in the past, top notch practice facilities can help universities with recruiting, so a two-story practice facility could be just one of many facelifts that the Longhorns football program will be making over the next few years to make things easier for Strong and his staff.
