Sporting News Says Charlie Is No. 2

Charlie Strong is the second best football coach in the Big East, according to Matt Hayes of The Sporting News. Top billing, in Hayes' eyes, goes to Cincinnati's Butch Jones.

Also, Doug Marrone apparently doesn't exist.

2. Charlie Strong, Louisville

Age: 51

2011 record: 7-6, 5-2

At Louisville (2 years): 14-12

FBS career (3 years): 14-13

It took a while, but Strong finally got his first coaching job and has quickly changed the culture at Louisville. He’s a strong recruiter unafraid of making tough decisions (see: firing offensive coordinator Mike Sanford in midseason).

"He worked a long time for this. Should have had the Cal job a decade ago. I’m really happy he’s getting the chance now to show what he can do. A terrific coach, and a good man." — BCS coach

Trending: Rising.

No. 2, eh?
