James Franklin, Charlie Strong deny interest in Miami job


Since the firing of head coach Al Golden, there have been plenty of big name candidates linked to the Miami Hurricanes vacancy. However, there are now two names that we can cross off the list.

Both Penn State Nittany Lions head coach James Franklin and Texas Longhorns coach Charlie Strong have publicly denied any interest in the job.

For Franklin, his focus is on his current team and he will not entertain any other job at this time.

“Let me say this… I don’t like it,” stated Franklin, via Lions 247. “I think it causes a distraction for our team, a distraction for Penn State. And I have no idea where it’s coming from whatsoever.

“My family has sacrificed, I’ve worked my ass off to get to Penn State. To get here. And this is where I want to be.”

Like Franklin, Strong has denied any interest in the job.

No, I’m not going to Miami,” Strong replied, according to The Dallas Morning News. “I have a great job. I’ve got to get things done here.”

So while the Hurricanes would love to get a big name candidate and Franklin is reportedly on their wishlist, it looks like they will need to look in another direction for the time being.
