Report: Louisville to hire Florida's Strong

From Pat Forde of

Louisville is on the verge of hiring Florida defensive coordinator Charlie Strong as its next coach.

The school has called a meeting of the personnel committee of the Louisville Athletic Association Board of Directors for Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. ET, where it is expected that the board will be asked to approve the hiring of Strong, a source close to the search said Tuesday.

Strong interviewed with Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich on Sunday in Gainesville. He is expected to be introduced in Louisville on Wednesday.

Louisville is seeking to replace Steve Kragthorpe, who was fired after three disappointing seasons.
