Charlie Strong informed Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich on Saturday night he was leaving the school to take the Texas job, a source told ESPN's Brett McMurphy.
Texas is likely to announce Strong's hiring Sunday, with a news conference to follow Monday, a source told ESPN's Joe Schad.
During conversations about the job, Strong impressed Texas with his commitment to the total student-athlete, a source said. The Longhorns were also impressed by individuals both inside and outside of football who vouched for Strong, according to the source.
Strong met with Jurich on Saturday night for less than an hour at Strong's Louisville home, a source said.
Louisville defensive line coach Clint Hurtt, who was sanctioned in the NCAA's investigation of the University of Miami, is not expected to follow Strong to Texas.
Strong, 53, is coming off his second straight double-digit victory season. He took over a program that was coming off three straight non-winning seasons and has gone 37-15.
