It has been announced that Charlie Strong will today be unveiled as the new coach of the Texas Longhorns.

In a statement issued by the Texas athletic advisor Steve Patterson, Strong was described as: "A man of great integrity, with a wonderful family, who is well respected inside and outside the game." 

Strong will join the Longhorns after a successful time in Louisville in which he led the team to two conference titles.

Last year he led them to an Allstate Sugar Bowl victory against No. 3 Florida. Although Louisville was his first job as a head coach he enjoyed a highly successful time at the helm.

Strong will be replacing Mack Brown who is leaving the Longhorns after 16 seasons. It was announced last month that Brown would be stepping down. The 62-year-old has built a successful winning formula in Texas and will leave the Longhorns in the capable hands of Charlie Strong.

UT president said it was: "A historic day for The University of Texas and a historic hire for our football team."

Strong will become the first black head coach in the history of school sports. 

Coach Strong spoke admirably of his former employers when the news was announced. He said to ESPN"They have been great to me and my family, and it was very hard to say goodbye, but they know this was an opportunity I couldn't pass up."
