Charlie Strong is headed to the University of South Florida, and the former University of Texas coach's Austin, Texas mansion is on the market.

The Austin Business Journal reports that the 10,896-square-foot Mediterranean-style home with five bedrooms, seven and a half bathrooms and a pool overlooking the Texas countryside is privately listed for $4.995 million.

The four-acre estate also features a home theater, basketball court and adjoining spa.

Strong made his first public appearance at the USF campus in Tampa this morning during an introductory news conference.

There's no word on where he'll live in the Tampa Bay area yet, but if he's looking for a comparable home in Tampa, he could be looking at Davis Islands or in the South Tampa neighborhoods of Palma Ceia, Culbreath Isles or Sunset Park.

Of course, there's always that home that his predecessor, former USF football coach Willie Taggart, just built in the Lutz area, before he decided to leave for Oregon.

Taggart was supposed to move in this month. He was upgrading from a $1.3 million, 7,200 square-foot mansion in Tampa Palms.
