Charlie Strong, the Louisville Cardinals head coach, can no longer deny that he’s going to be the next Texas Longhorns head coach. He’s expected to be introduced as the Longhorns next head coach tomorrow.
Strong is expected to replace long-time head coach Mack Brown, who was forced out. Brown resigned last month.
Strong interviewed with Longhorn officials last week. He was 37-15 at Louisville, and he wanted to meet with Cardinals Athletic Director Tom Jurich before giving him a decision on what he would do.
Jurich is reportedly stuck in Steamboat Springs, Colorado on vacation. Either Strong or the Longhorns would have to pay the reported $4.3 million buyout to the Cardinals once this move becomes official.
He’s expected to accept a five-year, $25 million deal. Strong is expected to be introduced to the Texas media and administration on Monday.
Strong was the Gators defensive coordinator from 2002 through 2009. He also served as Gators interim head coach when Urban Meyer was going through health problems.
This is his second head coaching job in college football. In addition, it is his second job ever within the state of Texas, as he was the Aggies graduate assistant in 1985.
