Strong to Texas not a done deal
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Charlie Strong remains Louisville’s football coach for the moment, telling assistants Saturday morning he hasn’t decided to accept Texas’ offer to become its coach.
Cardinals football spokesman Rocco Gasparro said Saturday that Strong told his staff that “no decision had been made” on whether to leave the school.
A person familiar with Texas’ search told The Associated Press on Friday night that Strong was expected to accept the school’s offer to replace Mack Brown, who stepped down last month.
Gasparro said there was no timetable on a decision by Strong, who is 37-15 with the Cardinals, including 3-1 in bowl games.
Strong, 53, met this week with new Texas athletic director Steve Patterson about the coaching vacancy, for which several prominent names have been mentioned as candidates. Among them was Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher — who agreed to a contract extension this week while preparing for Monday’s BCS national championship showdown with No. 2 Auburn.
