In earlier’s post where we brought you up to speed on the Charlie Strong-Texas saga, I mentioned that it is likely down to Strong and Baylor’s Art Briles for the job. Now a new name is in the mix. There could actually be plenty of other names in there, but not that are really known. James Franklin (Vanderbilt) and Jimbo Fisher (Florida State) are also names you may hear. The latest is UCLA’s Jim Mora. The more candidates we know about, the better as far as I’m concerned.
Texas is interested in UCLA coach Jim Mora as a possible replacement for Mack Brown, per sources.—

If you are on twitter a lot during your day, you have probably been keeping up with everything going on with Charlie Strong and the Texas job opening. So you will probably know all of this. However we know that a lot of readers either are not on social media or just do not keep up as much as some, so this is mainly for them.
While UofL has not come out and released an official statement (because there hasn’t been reason to), all of these things have been reported by multiple media outlets. So we believe them to be true. There are always crazy rumors when it comes to this stuff, so we will leave those out and just let you know what has been (likely) happening.
