Less than one week after future NFL Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy spoke against the lack of diversity in college football, one of the South’s premier football programs has added a new face to their sports centered campus.
Charlie Strong, former defensive coordinator for 2008’s national champion Florida Gators, is the new head coach for the Louisville Cardinals. He is but the latest of several new Black coaches hired to work for a major collegiate university in a matter of days.
“When we were offered this job, me and my wife looked at each other because you just never thought it was going to happen,” said Strong, underscoring his happiness with tiny shards of past disappointment.”
The 49-year-old will assume his new position immediately.
Though he is the head coach, he will also be creating and working exclusively with the Card’s defense.
