Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy has ‘no interest’ in USC job

Thursday October 15th, 2015

Oklahoma State’s Mike Gundy refuted any interest in the USC head coaching vacancy on Wednesday.

Speaking with reporters after practice, Gundy was upfront about his stance on the job opening after being tied to Steve Sarkisian’s former post by USA Today. 

“First off, I don't have any interest in the job,” Gundy said. “I have all the respect in the world for SC, but I've got a great job. We talked about that a year ago. But if you're having success at Oklahoma State in football when jobs open, then people will compile a list and the coach here would usually be on it if you're winning and having success. I feel like I have a better job.”

Oklahoma State is 6–0 and No. 16 in the AP Top 25. The Trojans are 3–2 and fired Sarkisian earlier this week, naming Clay Helton the interim head coach.
