Hold the freaking phone. Fire up the presses. Repeat that headline.

Texas Longhorns football coach Charlie Strong has pet tigers. And according to a picture posted by linebacker Dalton Santos, Strong brought them to the office for the day.



Perhaps following a 6-7 season, Strong wanted the team to learn that toughness and fight come from within. Those aren’t attributes that can simply be taught.

Or, the more likely option, maybe he just really likes tigers.

Either way, Santos was probably a little surprised when he walked into Strong’s office and found the duo scrapping.
