As we inch closer and closer to the official announcement that Louisville Cardinals head coach Charlie Strong will indeed become the new head coach of the Texas Longhorns, succeeding Mack Brown, more and more reports are starting to come to light from some actual reliable sources that this will become a reality.
There’s not too many more reliable sources in the college football world than ESPN’ Brett McMurphy who is reporting that Strong has informed Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich that he will indeed be going to Austin:
Charlie Strong informed UL AD Tom Jurich tonight he was leaving UL for Texas a source told @ESPN

Again, while it’s a little bit at a time, this is a move that seemingly will happen. Earlier tonight, reports were coming in from Austin that an official announcement should come around Sunday, with a press conference in front of the media some time Monday morning.
Although I think that we as college football fans can all agree that we’ll just be happy when all of this has ended, especially so Coach Strong can get into his new gig and get to work on doing exactly what he’s done for that Louisville program the past four years.
