Statement from University of Texas Football Head Coach Charlie Strong:

“I was recently given information regarding a marital dispute between a couple I know in Louisville. I’m not a party to their divorce and have received no court order in this case. I certainly respect the legal system, and if I do receive a court order, I will review it and respond then. Since this is a legal case, it wouldn’t be appropriate for me to say anything further at this time. I do want Longhorn fans and supporters to know that this will not affect my focus in any way. My number one priority is getting this team ready to compete at the highest level. We are doing that now and will continue to do so.”

Statement from University of Texas Men’s Athletics Director Mike Perrin:

“I’ve spoken with Charlie about the recent media reports and he will keep me apprised of this situation. I am confident Charlie will remain focused on moving the Longhorns forward. He is doing an outstanding job as our head coach and I continue to support those efforts as he prepares for the 2016 season
