If I’m Charlie Strong, I’m on the fastest thing smoking to Coral Gables. According to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports, Charlie Strong does have some interest in the Miami Hurricanes job, despite saying he has the best gig in college football.

“I keep hearing that too,” Feldman said of Strong having interest in Miami. “I’ve heard that from multiple sources now, one of them who is pretty close to Charlie Strong, saying he would have interest and that came a day before Charlie Strong got asked about it at Texas and he said “I have the best job in college football right now.” That may be true, he may have, as the Texas head coach — paid a lot of money, big resources… That doesn’t mean it’s the best job or the best situation for Charlie Strong and his family. Could UM pay as much as he’s making now? I think that’s a real stretch to think that… Can they pay him as much as he’s making or in the ballpark of it?

“The other question now I think that comes up is Charlie Strong may be 4-8 this year after a pretty bad season last year. Is Miami convinced he’s gonna be the guy?”

I think the drastic cut in pay will affect how Strong sees the Miami job, and Feldman does have a point. Are the Hurricanes even interested in a guy coming off two ugly losing seasons?
