Texas announces hire of Louisville's Charlie Strong Published: January 5, 2014

A new era in Texas football began Sunday when the Longhorns announced the hiring of Charlie Strong from Louisville.

Strong, 53, replaces Mack Brown after 16 seasons. He arrived in Austin on Sunday afternoon and will be introduced at a Monday news conference.

The hire ends the weeks of speculation out of Austin, as Strong will become the first African American head coach in UT men's sports history.
