Charlie Strong needed to do something big to save his job. He didn't, and the University of Texas is poised to move on quickly.
The third-year coach could be fired as early as Saturday, according to a report from The Dallas Morning News, after a 31-9 home loss at the hands of TCU.
LSU was winning Thursday night, but it looked like it was losing, too.
The move is the latest domino to fall in the saga of Tom Herman, who looks poised to have his choice between LSU and the Longhorns.
According to the report, UT President Greg Fenves and Athletic Director Mike Perrin are scheduled to meet in the morning, then hold a meeting with Strong. Texas is slated to meet with Herman later in the day.
LSU's football coaching search is down to two.
Herman, who has been narrowed down to a finalist for the LSU job alongside interim coach Ed Orgeron, is scheduled to meet with LSU on Saturday as well.
After a meeting Friday between Orgeron and LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva, Orgeron is still a 'serious' candidate.
The buzz surrounding Herman has been rolling following a report just before kickoff between Texas A&M and LSU that the Houston coach was close to a deal with the Tigers. Herman has since brushed off any reports, saying "don't believe anything that you read."
