Charlie Strong and I use the same professional (not a hooker) and that professional is a good friend of mine.
He said Charlie is extremely angry at Foley and UF for not even being truly considered for the job. It's so bad he doesn't think he'd ever come back to UF at least while Foley is there.
He was definitely motivated to rub Foley's face in it and he succeeded at every level.
Oh, Charlie will never mention the above publicly.
I love Charlie, but I wasn't completely convinced about him as an HC until the Sugar Bowl. His last 2 years weren't great, and he still lost 2 games this year to some average teams. But he definitely proved he can be a great HC.
I wonder why Foley didn't consider him. Maybe he is too old. I think Muschamp wanted an up and comer similar to the Billy D hire or Bob Stoops when he went to OU.
