Former USF football coach Charlie Strong was not out of a job for long. According to ESPN, Strong, who has had head-coaching stops at Louisville, Texas and South Florida, has agreed to a deal to become a defensive analyst at Alabama under Nick Saban.
Several other SEC schools had expressed interest in hiring Strong, but he chose Alabama Football.
Strong played defensive back in college, and was a pretty successful head coach at Louisville from 2010-2013, which helped him land the Texas job.
However, he was fired after going just 16-21 over a three-year stretch at Texas.
Strong was then hired by South Florida where he went 10-2 in his first season before things started to fall apart. He fired last season amid a stretch where USF had lost 14 of its last 18 games.
Now, Strong will join Nick Saban and Alabama where he will be a defensive assistant. Strong has worked with Urban Meyer, Steve Spurrier and Lou Holtz in his career, now add Nick Saban to that list.
