In a Wednesday press conference, Texas head coach Charlie Strong attempted to deny rumors linking him to the Miami coaching vacancy.
“It’s all a rumor,” Strong told reporters. “We’re here to build a program. That’s why I came here.”
Strong said it bothered him that the Miami rumors persisted. The Hurricanes fired Al Golden earlier this season. "I have an unbelievable job here,” Strong said. “I don't know where that comes from."
The Palm Beach Post reported Wednesday that Miami has centered its search on Strong and is waiting to see if Texas fires him.
“We have an unbelievable fan base, unbelievable support from our alums,” Strong said. “We've got to get it done. I can see where it's upsetting and everybody's disappointed. Nobody's more frustrated than I am. When you go out to play, you want to win. That's what it's all about, go win football games.” - Jeremy Woo
