This would finally put to rest all of that speculation. Late Friday night, reports began to surface that the fourth-year Cardinals head coach would be taking over in Austin. But Saturday morning, the talk was that Strong had delayed the agreement until he had spoken with his Louisville players.
Among the details discussed in Friday night’s report were that the school had agreed with Strong on a five-year deal that would pay him somewhere in the are of $5 million per season.
