Charlie Strong is staying at Louisville.
The football coach said he turned down an offer from Tennessee and will stay with the Cardinals.
''It became clear to me that it was best to stay in Louisville,'' Strong said at a press conference at the stadium on Thursday morning. ''We haven't finished the job yet.''
The No. 22 Cardinals (10-2) won a share of the Big East Conference championship and a BCS berth in the Sugar Bowl, where they'll face Florida.
A press conference with Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich is scheduled for later Thursday.
Strong's name had surfaced for openings at Tennessee and Auburn in the past week.
''They made an offer and I said I'd think about it and talk about it with my family,'' he said about the Tennessee offer that came Tuesday.
Speculation linking him to the Auburn job triggered a denial as he prepared the Cardinals for their title-deciding game at Rutgers last Thursday.
