Louisville coach Charlie Strong to appear on a Maker’s Mark bottle

View photo

Charlie Strong is 14-12 in his two seasons as the head coach at Louisville — the school's first two winning seasons since going 12-1 in 2006 — and apparently, that's enough for Maker's Mark to model a bottle of its fine Kentucky Bourbon for him.

According to (also thanks to Card Chronicle), Maker's Mark will produce a limited edition bottle with the coach's picture on it that will be available July 20.

Maker's Mark does special edition bottles for the Kentucky Derby and occasionally for star former players from the state's top-two schools, but putting the second-year coach on the bottle — after two 7-6 seasons — has to be some sort of anomaly.

Wonder what it'll do if Louisville actually has a championship season?
