The University of Texas is set to fire coach Charlie Strong, according to the Austin American-Statesman, ramping up what's expected to be yet another frenzied season of coaching hirings and firings involving big-name schools -- like LSU.
Texas (5-6) lost at Kansas on Saturday. The Jayhawks were 0-for-their-last-19 Big 12 games.
Strong reportedly has two guaranteed years left on his contract, amounting to $10.7 million.
LSU, meanwhile, officially started the big-time college football coaching carousel earlier this season when it fired coach Les Miles.
Ed Orgeron was hired to replace Miles for, at the least, the rest of this season and was impressive in his first five games, going 4-1 with the only loss being a 10-0 home defeat to Alabama. Conventional wisdom said Orgeron, after the Alabama loss, needed to win out to stand a better than average chance of becoming LSU’s permanent head coach.
He didn’t, after Saturday's excruciating 16-10 loss at home to Florida, and now LSU will likely look elsewhere.
