Even though there are multiple reports circulating this morning that Louisville football coach Charlie Strong is set to take over as head coach of the Texas Longhorns, Strong himself hasn’t officially accepted the job yet. So what’s the hold up? The coach wants to meet face to face with Louisville Athletic Director Tom Jurich. The two have supposedly spoken by phone, but a physical meeting will have to wait as Jurich is attempting to get back home from a vacation in Colorado and the crazy winter weather is delaying his return. Strong has reportedly been offered a five-year contract worth $25 million to coach at the University of Texas. In December, long time head coach Mack Brown was let go at Texas after 16 years at the helm and one national title. Other names that were thrown in the mix for the Texas job include, Alabama’s Nick Saban, UCLA’s Jim Mora, and Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher.

Strong is coming off back-to-back bowl wins for the Cardinals and he just finished his fourth year as head coach. He was previously a defensive coordinator for the Florida Gators. Earlier this week, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater announced he was forgoing his senior season at Louisville to enter the 2014 NFL Draft.
