Should the Hurricanes be interested?
In less than two years at Texas, Strong is only 9-11. He also is the third-highest-paid in America with the Longhorns, making more than twice as much as former Hurricanes’ coach Al Golden. Both of those would lessen his appeal.
The Miami Herald is the latest publication to say that Strong is interested. The newspaper also said that Cincinnati coach Tommy Tuberville, a former UM assistant, is interested and that the school was willing to take “a fresh look” at former UM coach Butch Davis. Davis, however, is 63 and has not coached in five years.
Others who have been associated with the job include former Bucs’ coach Greg Schiano, former UM player Mario Cristobal and Colts’ offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinksi. Interim coach Larry Scott is 2-0, and an upset over North Carolina this week could cement his efforts to stay.
