Former UofL Quarterback Joins Charlie Strong’s Staff At South Florida

South Florida Athletics

When Charlie Strong left Louisville for Texas three years ago the majority of his staff followed him to Austin. Former Cardinal quarterback Justin Burke was a graduate assistant at UofL under Charlie Strong shortly after his playing career ended in 2010.

The Lexington native was a special assistant at Texas for two years and spent this past season as a quality control special assistant working with tight ends. Burke recently landed a bigger role on Charlie Strong’s new South Florida staff. USF announced earlier this week that Burke has been hired as the tight ends and special teams coach.

“Justin is a bright young coach with a great future and I’m happy he’s joining us at USF,” Strong said in a statement. “He’s a former collegiate quarterback and an All-Big East Academic Team honoree with an MBA, so he’s a smart guy with recent playing experience and will work great with our players at USF.”

Burke was a two-year letter winner and started eight games as a quarterback at Louisville before graduating with a degree in accounting in 2009. He started his career at North Carolina State before transferring to Louisville.
