Bobby Burton, a contributor for 247sports.com, tweeted late Friday night that Texas will be naming Charlie Strong their next head coach. Horns247 was the first to report the news. The news comes fresh after Louisville’s 36-9 blasting of Miami in the Russell Athletic Bowl, and confirmation that quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will enter the 2014 NFL Draft. Through four years at Louisville, Strong held a record of 37-15, finishing his last two seasons at 11-2 and 12-1, and coached the Cardinals to a bowl game each year during his tenure, most notably his 33-23 win over Florida in last year’s BCS Sugar Bowl. Coach Strong was 3-1 in four bowl games. Best of luck to Coach Strong.

Strong showing against #1 Miss St, brings the Cats some respect. What is notable from this defeat is the attention Patrick Towles will recieve after out dueling a Hesiman hopeful.
