AUSTIN, Texas -- Charlie Strong may be coaching his last game at Texas.With a 16-20 record in three seasons, Strong has been told his future will be evaluated after Fridays regular-season finale at home against TCU. That comes against the backdrop of multiple media reports that the decision to fire him has already been made.Strong said this week he hopes thats not the case, and that school administrators have promised him a full season before evaluating his future.And, he said, he most certainly wants to come back . He has two years left on a contract that pays him more than $5 million per year.I look at the job that this staff has done and I look at the players that they have put in place and I look at just how far we have come. The wins and losses, they dont stack up, but still, you are looking at a young football team and a team that, when you get everything back in place for the upcoming year, its got a lot of talent, Strong said.Strong said he hopes beating TCU would work in his favor, but school President Greg Fenves, who been an strong advocate for the coach this season, has remained silent since Texas lost at lowly Kansas last week.A win would make the Longhorns bowl eligible, marking a slight improvement over last season. But thats a big part of the problem. He was hired to bring Texas back to the top of the Big 12. That Texas has to fight just to make a bowl game is not where Longhorns fans expect their program to be.You asked this guy to come in and change the culture and hes done that, senior linebacker Tim Cole said. Im telling you, hes going to be pay dividends for this program, for this fan base. Hes going to build a dynasty here.TCU coach Gary Patterson, who handed Strong two of his most humiliating losses the past two seasons, is also trying to push his team to a bowl game in what has been a disappointing season. He expects the Longhorns to bring an emotional effort Friday.Theyll be playing for their coach, Patterson said. Thats such a big motivator.Some things to watch for when the Longhorns (5-6, 3-5 Big 12) meet the Horned Frogs (5-5, 3-4):DONTAS MARCHTexas running back DOnta Foreman is having one of the best rushing seasons in school history and is approaching 2,000 yards. Hes one of three finalists for the Doak Walker Award given to the nations top running backs. But hes also coughed up some key fumbles, including a late one against Kansas that set-up the game-tying drive.INCONSTENT QUARTERBACKSTexas Shane Buechele finally had a freshman-like game at Kansas, throwing a pick-six interception and another in overtime that set up the Jayhawks winning field goal. TCUs Kenny Hill has thrown 12 interceptions and was pulled from last weeks blowout home loss to Oklahoma State.TURPIN TORNADOThe Horned Frogs KaVonte Turpin ripped Texas with four touchdowns in a 50-7 win last season. He missed four games this season with an injury, but has 13 catches and a touchdown in the last three games.MISSING MALIKTexas middle linebacker Malik Jefferson missed most of the last two games with a head injury. His coaches hope their second-leading tackler, who has 4+ sacks, can return this week.STRONGS EXITStrongs players love him. More than 50 showed up for his Monday news conference, and theyve put him on their shoulders after big wins before. Strong may get carried off again, win or lose, on Friday by a group of players who see him as much of a father figure as a coach.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Nike Free Outlet Store .

MIAMI -- Buyers at the trade deadline for a change, the Miami Marlins believe they now have enough starting pitching to make a playoff push.The Marlins acquired the rotation reinforcements they sought in a trade Friday that cost them four players. Right-handers Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea were sent to Miami by the San Diego Padres in the seven-player deal.Miami also will receive pitching prospect Tayron Guerrero and cash for right-handers Jarred Cosart and Carter Capps and two minor leaguers, pitching prospect Luis Castillo and first baseman Josh Naylor.The one message it does send is that were trying to win, Miami manager Don Mattingly said. Were not trying to go backward. We have an opportunity here.The Marlins are in contention for their first playoff berth since 2003 despite a shaky rotation. Aside from ace Jose Fernandez, their starters are 23-24 with an ERA of 4.40.Rea will start Saturday against the St. Louis Cardinals, and Cashner will start the series finale Sunday.Cashner is 4-7 with a 4.76 ERA in 16 starts, including a 2.55 ERA in his past three outings while being showcased for a trade.We wanted to get someone that was hot and could bring an immediate impact, Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said.Cashner has a career record of 30-49 with a 3.73 ERA in seven seasons. Mattingly, former manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, faced the 6-foot-6 right-hander often in the NL West.Ive seen him really good, Mattingly said. Hes got power stuff. I saw him when he was their No. 1, and he has that kind of stuff.Rea, who is in his second major league season, is 5-5 with a 4.98 ERA in 19 games this year.Cashner has a $7.15 million contract and becomes a free agent after this season.dddddddddddd Rea, 26, has a salary of $510,200 and is under team control through 2018.The Padres are fourth in the NL West and looking to future seasons, and for them the prize in the deal might be Naylor, 19, a left-handed power hitter taken by the Marlins in the first round of the 2015 draft. He is batting .269 with nine home runs this year for Single-A Greensboro.Cosart went 13-11 in 2014 with Houston and Miami but has struggled since. This year he is 0-1 with a 5.95 ERA in four starts with the Marlins, and 3-4 with a 4.09 ERA in 10 starts for Triple-A New Orleans.Capps, a reliever with a 100 mph fastball, underwent Tommy John surgery in March and is expected to be ready for opening day 2017.We traded away good players, Hill said. To get quality, you have to give quality.Miamis already thin rotation was further depleted last week when left-hander Wei-Yin Chen went on the disabled list because of a sprained elbow. Cashner and Rea will join Fernandez, Tom Koehler and Adam Conley.Marlins players applauded the trade.Cashner has very good stuff, Fernandez said. Ive actually faced him hitting, and I dont like to hit against him. I think hes going to help us get to where we need to go.Miami designated outfielder Cole Gillespie and infielder Cole Figueroa for assignment.The trade is the second between the Marlins and Padres this summer. In June, Miami acquired All-Star reliever Fernando Rodney for a minor league pitcher.---AP Freelancer Christopher Stock in Miami contributed to this report.
