Charlie Strong Addresses Coaching Rumors Head On

Rich Schultz

Following last night's win over Rutgers, Charlie Strong was asked point blank about the rumors that he interviewed for the vacant head coaching spot at Auburn, a report he had already flatly denied.

Anytime a reporter can make a statement or write any type of information about someone, you have to be held accountable, just like we are held accountable for our job. So if you are going to make that statement, go get your source. I'd like to know who your source is. I am trying to get a football team ready to go play Rutgers. That's all I'm concerned about. I have a job. I don't need to go chase jobs. I have a really good job.

It was a distraction for our program. It was a distraction for our fans. It was testing me. I am trying to get a football team ready to go play, and I am chasing another job so I am not taking care of the job I have? Then I don't have the respect of the players. When they respect me and they do everything I ask them to do, and then all of a sudden I am going to turn my back on them and go interview for a job two days before a big game? Come on, seriously?

And then when asked a follow-up question about whether or not he could say he was absolutely not interested in any other jobs...

Let's concentrate on this, let's worry about the game. Let's not worry about the job right now. Let's worry about the game.
