Louisville coach Charlie Strong will replace Mack Brown as the head coach at Texas, according to a high-ranking UT source.
Pat Forde from Yahoo is denying it FWIW, and Chip Brown has been throwing alotta junk at the wall seems like lately. Anyways be an interesting hire, and curious to see how Strong recruits in Texas. I'm assuming his ties in Florida are pretty good.
If nothing else this Texas opening is an interesting case in journalism/sourcing/speculation
EDIT: SI now saying 5 years/ $5 mill annually http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/colleg ... ead-coach/
