Louisville Athletic Director Tom Jurich tells the media that he wants outgoing head coach Charlie Strong to know that he wishes him well and the Texas Longhorns are receiving a great coach.

Jurich confirmed during a press conference on Sunday that he spoke with Strong about his decision to leave on Saturday night after returning from Colorado. Jurich said he thanked Strong for the job he did at UofL, including changing the culture of the program. Jurich says he is now focused on his next hire and his intentions are to find someone who will continue to build upon what Strong started at UofL. He said he wants to keep the momentum going as Louisville enters the ACC.

When asked about the future of the program, Jurich says he has not yet spoken with any candidates at this time. He said he plans to meet with the team later today.
