Show Strong the money! After turning down historical powerhouse Tennessee, it was assumed that Louisville was prepared to make head coach Charlie Strong a very rich man. Rich may just be an understatement, however, as Strong’s new deal is worth $3.7 million annually, according to ESPN.
That’s SEC-type money, just ask the Volunteers, who reportedly offered Strong $3.5 million annually to resurrect their embattled program.
Strong is coming off of a 33-23 victory over No. 3 Florida, his former team, in the BCS Sugar Bowl.
