LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Will he stay or will he go? As the University of Texas coaching search continues University of Louisville Head Football Coach Charlie Strong continues to be a main topic of conversation in the Commonwealth.

So should UofL fans be worried?

WAVE 3 Sports Director Kent Taylor spoke with UofL's Athletics Director Tom Jurich Thursday who said there is nothing new to report.

The Cards AD was adamant last winter that when Strong was up for the Tennessee job that he did everything right and was up front throughout the process. So there's no reason to believe that is not the case here.

In addition to Strong Texas Athletic Director Steve Patterson is also interested in talking with Baylor's coach Art Briles.

The process could take a few weeks to play out, so fans and recruits will just have to be patient.
