Mike Sanford is no longer a member of the Louisville football staff

Charlie Strong met with members of the media on Monday night and confirmed what most had already expected; former offensive coordinator Mike Sanford is no longer a member of the Louisville coaching staff.

"Mike Sanford is no longer with our coaching staff, and both sides have mutually agreed," Strong said. "Mike Sanford is an outstanding football coach and an outstanding person, but whenever I make a decision I have to make a decision in the best interest of our program."

Quarterbacks coach Shawn Watson was given play-calling duties in the week leading up to U of L's Oct. 8 game at North Carolina. Despite Sanford not traveling with the team to Chapel Hill, Strong said after the game that he would be re-joining the staff in a to-be-determined role. Apparently that's not going to happen.

Strong has denied the rumor that there was an altercation between he and Sanford at practice on the Tuesday following Louisville's home loss to Marshall.

As for the future of the offensive coordinator position, Strong says that's something that will be re-evaluated once the season comes to a close. He says there are no plans to make any midseason additions to the staff.
