People with knowledge of the situation tell The Associated Press that Louisville coach Charlie Strong has informed Cardinals athletic director Tom Jurich that he is leaving for Texas.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because no official an announcement had been made.

Strong, who was 37-15 with the Cardinals, including 3-1 in bowl games, will replace Mack Brown.

The 53-year-old Strong met this week with new Texas athletic director Steve Patterson about the coaching vacancy, but he wanted to wait until speaking directly with Jurich to accept Texas’ offer.
