Tucson, AZ (KOLD) - Amidst the flurry of speculation over whether Arizona head football coach Rich Rodriguez may consider leaving the U of A for Louisville, Wildcat athletic director Greg Byrne tweeted the following this morning:
Coach Rodriguez is doing a great job w/our FB program. We talk regularly & feel good about him being our long term HC.
Sounds a lot like contract extension talk.
Rumors started spreading yesterday when a story was posted by footballscoop.com that Cardinals athletic director Tom Jurich had the Arizona head coach on his "short list" of candidates.
A University spokesperson declined to comment on whether or not Louisville had reached out to Arizona and asked permission to speak to Rodriguez.
In two seasons, Rodriguez has compiled a 16-10 record with two bowl wins and three wins over top 25 teams.
