Source: Strong would go to Texas if offered

January, 4, 2014

Louisville coach Charlie Strong has not been formally offered the head coaching job at Texas but would accept it if he was, a source told ESPN's Brett McMurphy on Friday night.

Another source told McMurphy that Strong said he has not accepted the Texas job, but wants to talk to Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich and university president Jes Ramsey.

Horns247 reported earlier Friday that Strong would be Texas' next coach.

Texas is looking to replace Mack Brown, whose era with the Longhorns ended with Monday's 30-7 loss to Oregon in the Valero Alamo Bowl.
