Texas will fire head coach Charlie Strong on Saturday morning, SI's Pete Thamel has confirmed. Chip Brown of Scout.com first reported the news.

Texas men's athletic director Mike Perrin issued a statement last Sunday, saying that the school will "evaluate the body of work after the regular season," after Thamel confirmed that the school had made the decision to fire Strong.

A report on Saturday, before the Longhorns took on Kansas, said that the school is under “extreme pressure” to replace Strong with Houston’s Tom Herman.
