Charlie Strong is an ex-Texas head football coach. The university fired Strong after three at-best lackluster seasons in Austin.
Strong was 16-21 in his three seasons at Texas. He took the Longhorns to the 2014 Texas Bowl in his first season, where they lost to Arkansas 31-7.
Heather Dinich of ESPN reports that Texas will hire Houston coach Tom Herman to replace Strong, although no official statement from the school has been made.
I have confirmed, per a source close to the situation, that Texas will hire Houston coach Tom Herman. Release expected later today.— Heather Dinich (@CFBHeather) November 26, 2016
Strong's last game as Texas head coach was on Friday, when TCU defeated the Longhorns 31-9.
Herman led Houston to a 9-3 regular season record during the 2016 regular season. The Cougars were defeated by Memphis 48-44 in the final game of the season on Friday.
