The Louisville Cardinals football team is without a head coach after Charlie Strong accepted the Texas Longhorns job. The Cardinals are moving quickly apparently though, andnthey’ve already got a name they’d like to explore.
Former Michigan Wolverine head coach and current Arizona Wildcats head coach Rich Rodriguez.
I’m hearing this morning that Arizona’s Rich Rodriguez will not be a candidate for the Louisville job.

From AZ Central.com:
Wildcats coach Rich Rodriguez, who is 16-10 in two seasons in Tucson, is reportedly at the top of Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich’s wish list, according to FootballScoop.com, which is an industry leader for coaching news.
The site reported Sunday that Jurich “is working on it today” in regard to the process of hiring a new coach.
Matt Jones of KentuckySportsRadio.com commented Saturday night that Louisville would target Rodriguez.
It’d be interesting to see if he’d actually consider leaving. He has turned the Wildcats football program around significantly. This year they went 8-5 and beat Boston College in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl. Hard to believe he’d want to abandon all that.
