Texas officially announces hiring of Charlie Strong
After days of speculation it became official on Sunday: Charlie Strong is the new coach at Texas.
It's official, Texas announced on Sunday that it had hired Charlie Strong as its new head coach.
"I'm excited and my family is excited to have the chance to lead one of the premier football programs in the country," said Strong in the official release. "Texas is one of those places that is always on your radar and a program anyone would dream of being a part of because you have a chance to compete on a national level every year. It's special because it has such great history, pride, tradition and passion for football.
"To follow a future Hall of Fame coach like Mack Brown, who built a program that had great success and a reputation of doing it with class and integrity, is extra special. The National Championship, BCS Bowl wins and all he accomplished in 16 years built on the Longhorn legacy and makes it such an exciting place to be."
Reports first surfaced on Friday that Strong would be the man to replace Mack Brown in Austin.
In his four seasons at Louisville Strong went 37-15 in his four seasons at Louisville, including a 23-3 mark in the last two seasons. He also won two conference titles and a Sugar Bowl against Florida last season.
