AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - New Texas football coach Charlie Strong says he's excited to lead one of the premier programs in the country, calling the Longhorns job a dream.

In a statement released by the school formally announcing the hire Sunday, Strong called Texas a special program because of its history, tradition and pride.

Strong spent the previous four years at Louisville. His Cardinals teams went 23-3 the last two seasons. He replaces Mack Brown, who coached Texas for 16 years and won the 2005 national championship. The Longhorns have lost at least four games each of the last four seasons.

Strong says the decision to leave Louisville was difficult, but Texas was a job offer he couldn't pass up.

Strong was traveling to Austin on Sunday and will be introduced at a Monday news conference.
