Former Cardinals

Charlie Strong Fired At South Florida

Pete Cautilli

Former Louisville head coach Charlie Strong is reportedly out of a job in South Florida.

Dan Wolken of USA Today reports that University of South Florida football staffers have been informed that Charlie Strong has been fired by the school.

The former Louisville head coach got off to a great start in Tampa, but the Bulls crumbled over the past two seasons.

After going 15-2 vs. FBS opponents through his first season and a half, USF went 3-14 thereafter.

With Saturday’s loss to Centra Florida, USF finished the 2019 season with a 4-8 record and were 2-6 in AAC play.

Strong went 37-15 in four seasons at Louisville from 2010-13 and helped guide the Cards to a BCS Bowl won against a Florida in the Sugar Bowl. Louisville’s quick resurgence under Strong certainly played a role in the school earning an invite to the ACC.

We wish Coach Strong the best in whatever the future holds for him.
