“I visited with Charlie just a little bit ago,” Snyder said. “I think the important thing is just be who you are. And if you indeed do that, be who you are, care about people, I think things can work out fine for him.”

Coach Snyder is well known for his sportsmanship and approach.  For instance, sending a note of congratulations to North Dakota State quarterback after beating his own Wildcats in a major upset in 2013.  Or sending a note to Texas Tech TE Jace Amaro after an injury.  And Strong is likely to listen.  In one of the most pressure head coaching positions, if he tries to be someone else, he is certain to fail.
