Charlie Strong tells Louisville he’s off to Texas

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Louisville says coach Charlie Strong has informed Cardinals athletic director Tom Jurich that he is leaving for Texas.

Strong, who was 37-15 with the Cardinals in four seasons, including 3-1 in bowl games, will replace Mack Brown.

The 53-year-old Strong met this week with new Texas athletic director Steve Patterson about the coaching vacancy, but he wanted to wait until speaking directly with Jurich to accept Texas’ offer. Jurich was on vacation in Colorado and weather problems made traveling back to Louisville difficult.

Jurich returned to Louisville on Saturday night and met with Strong. Jurich gave Strong his first chance to be a head coach after a long successful career as a defensive coordinator.

SI.com has reported Strong will receive a five-year contract that will pay him $5 million annually.
