Louisville's Charlie Strong accepts Texas coaching job

Louisville officials confirmed late Saturday that Charlie Strong will leave to become the next head football coach at the University of Texas. Texas had not made an official announcement as of late Saturday night because it was waiting for Strong to have a face-to-face meeting with Louisville Athletics Director Tom Jurich, who was stuck in Colorado most of the day and couldn't return to Kentucky because of inclement weather.
