Charlie Strong to be named Texas coach
Texas is expected to name Louisville’s Charlie Strong as its next head football coach.
According to a report from CBSSports.com’s Bruce Feldman, Strong will be announced as Texas’ new head coach on Sunday.
Strong met with Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich late Friday night. He reportedly told his coaching staff Saturday morning that he had not made a decision as to whether or not he would accept the job.
The Texas deal is expected to be for five years and will pay Strong around $5 million per season, according to media reports.
The 53-year-old Strong will replace Mack Brown, the school’s second-winningest head coach, who stepped down after 16 seasons on Dec. 14.
Strong’s deal with Louisville pays him a base salary of $3.7 million per year, with a buyout of $4.375 million if he were to leave for another job prior to the summer of 2014.
He compiled a 37-15 record in five seasons at Louisville.
