Charles Goldberg of AL.com, a Birmingham Alabama newspaper reported earlier this evening that Charlie Strong has interviewed at Auburn to be their next head coach. Goldberg claims a source familiar with the process says the interview happened within the last two days.
Within an hour of this article being published online, Charlie Strong was on the phone with multiple media members denying that he’s interviewed at Auburn. “I didn’t interview with Auburn, I have a job,” Strong tells Pat Forde of Yahoo.
Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated also says he spoke to Strong who denied interviewing with Auburn. Thamel says Strong was angry about this news being put out there.
As I’ve said many of times in the past year, Louisville fans need to just prepare for these types of things. At this point, we have no choice, but to trust Coach Strong. With that said, this isn’t the type of news you like to see breaking the night before the Big East championship game.
