Charlie Strong’s contract approved!

NCAA Football: Sugar Bowl-Louisville vs Florida

By Justin Renck:

On Wednesday afternoon, Charlie Strong’s new contract was approved, and the head coach got a nice little raise! The University of Louisville Athletic Association (ULAA) approved a contract that will pay Strong $3.7 million per year (before incentives), making him the 7th highest paid head coach in the country behind Nick Saban (Alabama), Mack Brown (Texas), Bob Stoops (Oklahoma), Urban Meyer (Ohio State), Les Miles (LSU), and Kirk Ferentz (Iowa).

The contract runs through December 31, 2020. Here are some snapshots of the first 2 pages of the contract (hope you can read it) taken from Steve Jones of the Courier-Journal. Click on the pictures to make them bigger. The bottom of the 2nd page discusses the buyout if Strong were to leave for another job while still under contract.

Coach Strong’s record in his 3 seasons at UofL is 25-14. He took over for a 4-8 team and went 7-6 in his first season, including a Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl victory. He followed that up with another 7-6 season and an appearance in the Belk Bowl. It all came together for Coach Strong in year 3, when it was a team of mostly his recruits, and the Cards went 11-2 and capped off the season with a thrilling 33-23 Sugar Bowl victory over the 3rd ranked Florida Gators!
