FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman "Keeps Hearing" Charlie Strong Is Interested In Miami Job

The Charlie Strong-to-Miami rumors just aren't going to go away. Not until the Hurricanes actually hire a head coach, anyway. 

Despite Strong publicly denying interest in the opening, reports of his interest in the job continue to surface. 

The latest update comes from FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman, who said on Miami's 790 The Ticket’s Izzy and Ethan radio show that he "keeps hearing" Strong has interest in the position.

“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?”

Texas is certainly a better job than Miami, but would Strong, who's struggled so far in Austin, be happier with the Hurricanes? It's possible.
