Yahoo Sports is reporting on Tuesday that the Texas coaching search has led to inquiries being made about Louisville coach Charlie Strong.
This comes on the heels of an Orangebloods.com report that Texas athletic director Steve Patterson flew to an undisclosed location to interview Strong.
Still, it looks like Louisville won’t let Strong go without a fight:
Sources also told Yahoo Sports that the Cardinals will be proactive in trying to keep Strong if he is offered the Texas job. Louisville signed Strong to an eight-year contract extension in early 2013 after the coach was approached about the then-vacant job at Tennessee. That extension bumped his annual base salary up to $3.7 million
Strong recently led the Cardinals to a 12-1 season, tied for the best record in school history.
