Charlie Strong Shuts Down Miami Rumors

Strong said he still has a lot of work to do at Texas.

It didn't take long for Charlie Strong to be asked about his interest in the Miami head coaching job on Monday. 

The first question posed to Strong was on that topic - The Hurricanes fired Al Golden after Miami suffered its worse loss in school history on Saturday, a 58-0 drubbing at home against Clemson.

Strong kept his response short and to the point: "I have the best job in the country."

He was asked about the job again at the tail end of his portion of Texas' weeky Monday press conference and, again, deflected any interest in the Hurricanes.

"I have a great job here," he said. "I've got to get things done here."

Strong's Longhorns are 3-4 after winning their second straight game on Saturday, a 23-9 victory over Kansas State. They'll travel to Iowa State on Saturday. 

He is in the second-year of a contract that will end on Jan. 14, 2019 at $5 million per season with a $100,000 annual increase.
