Let's close the loop on this stream with this update from other mothership:
Louisville head coach Charlie Strong is being hired to replace Mack Brown at Texas, according to 247 Sports and later Rivals and Football Scoop. Sports Illustrated says Strong has agreed to a five-year deal worth $5 million per, and ESPN reports the hire is not official, but that Strong "will accept."
Strong would be the 29th head coach to lead the Longhorns.
Good luck to our Texas friends. I think Strong is a solid get for the Longhorns and they are going to be tough - especially at a "neutral field" like Jerry Dome next season (thanks a lot Chianti).
