Major Applewhite has been selected by the Cougars to replace Tom Herman, who left to become head coach of Texas.

It's the first head coaching job for the 38-year-old Applewhite, who served as Herman's offensive coordinator the last two seasons.
Part of Strong's decision-making process is deciding whether to immediately take another head-coaching position or accept a job as a defensive coordinator.
