Louisville head football coach Charlie Strong will likely be "a leading candidate" for NFL head coaching openings during the offseason, ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting.

Strong and Stanford's David Shaw are being advocated by a recently formed NFL advisory committee aimed at identifying potential minority coaching candidates, according to the report.

The 53-year-old Strong, who has posted a 31-15 record in three-plus years at Louisville following an eight-year stint at Florida, could even choose to reunite with current Louisville quarterback and potential No. 1 NFL Draft pick Teddy Bridgewater.

From the report:

If Strong and Bridgewater end up on with same team in the NFL, it would be similar to the current situations in Indianapolis, where the Colts hired Pep Hamilton to serve as Andrew Luck's offensive coordinator, and Miami, where Mike Sherman was hired as an offensive coordinator for Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

Shaw, 41, has led Stanford to a 28-5 record since taking over for now-49ers coach Jim Harbaugh in 2011.
