Charlie Strong Named Texas Head Football Coach

Updated: Sunday, January 5 2014, 02:15 PM CST

The University of Texas has confirmed that they have a new head football coach.

University of Louisville coach Charlie Strong has been named the 29th head coach, according to Man’s Athletic Director Steve Patterson.

"I'm excited and my family is excited to have the chance to lead one of the premier football programs in the country,” Strong said. “Texas is one of those places that is always on your radar and a program anyone would dream of being a part of because you have a chance to compete on a national level every year. It's special because it has such great history, pride, tradition and passion for football."

"To follow a future Hall of Fame coach like Mack Brown, who built a program that had great success and a reputation of doing it with class and integrity, is extra special,” Strong said. “The National Championship, BCS Bowl wins and all he accomplished in 16 years built on the Longhorn legacy and makes it such an exciting place to be. Coach Brown developed such a strong bond with his players, the lettermen, community and high school coaches in this state, and that's something I hope to build on. He made everyone feel at home. I had the opportunity to speak at the High School Coaches Clinic in Austin a few years ago and Coach Brown introduced Coach (Darrell) Royal, and everyone gave him a standing ovation. Meeting Coach Royal and being around him that day is something I'll never forget." 

Strong is a two-time conference coach of the year that has posted at least 11 wins in each of the last two seasons.
