Reports: Tennessee Offers Strong; Louisville Working To Keep Him

GoVols247 is reporting that the Tennessee Volunteers have offered Charlie Strong to be their next head football coach. Now, it appears the ball is in UofL's court.

According to Louisville Courier-Journal reporter Adam Himmelsbach, the University of Louisville is working on renegotiating Charlie Strong's contract with the help of Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs.

If it's about money here, obviously, Strong will probably stay at Louisville. The University of Tennessee probably doesn't want to get into a bidding war with anybody, especially an athletic director as stubborn and powerful as Tom Jurich. If it's about getting better recruits and competing in a better conference, UT stands a chance. If Strong is the guy we want, I doubt this is the end of it.

Stay tuned.
