The name of University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong has come up as the odds-on-favorite - according to Las Vegas bookmakers - as the next head coach at Texas.
But somebody might want to inform Strong of the plan for him to bolt for Austin.
It was business as usual for the fourth-year coach at U of L, who received a commitment from a prospect on Monday night and then met with local media members discussing the bowl game and the future of the U of L program on Tuesday.
"We still have a lot of work to do," Strong said. "We're not finished here."
Strong will put his team through its fifth bowl practice on Tuesday afternoon despite his Vegas odds at 6-5 by one bookmaker and 2-1 by another to take the Texas position.
He chuckled at the speculation.
"I don't even think about it," he said. "I don't even worry about it. I have a really good job here. There's a lot of work to be done here. The only thing that I can control is what is happening right here."
A longtime assistant coach, Strong likes to point out it took him a while to get his first head coaching gig and he always gives thanks to Tom Jurich for "giving me the chance."
"Four years ago, I didn't have a job and nobody wanted me," Strong said. "Now, I have a job and I get all of the talk. I didn't have a job and nobody wanted me.
"That's a credit to the staff and what we have done here (at U of L)."
Strong said none of the speculation has hurt bowl preparation and he will continue to coach "my team." U of L will leave for Orlando, Fla., on Sunday to prepare for Miami there.
"The only thing I can control is what is happening right here," Strong said. "I just want to make sure that I don't allow that to take away from our bowl preparation or to hinder anything we are trying to do at this university.
"So, I don't even get caught up into it."
