Strong departs Louisville after four seasons.
Charlie Strong has decided to leave Louisville for Texas, ending a successful four-year run with the Cardinals.
Reports surfaced on Friday night that Strong was Texas’ top pick, but he waited to accept the job until he had a chance to meet face-to-face with athletic director Tom Jurich on Saturday.
In four years at Louisville, Strong compiled a 37-15 record. Over the last two years, the Cardinals were 23-3 and won back-to-back bowl games.
