Why is that? Because some local news station -- one that is getting a ton of publicity right now, I would imagine -- says it has sources that confirmed Muschamp would be hired today. One problem, the horse's mouth disagrees:
Muschamp also released a statement Friday:
"I have not interviewed for any jobs. I'm not interested in any jobs. I'm happy here, my family loves Austin and I'm going to be at Texas."
Last month, Muschamp was named as the coach to replace Brown when he steps down at some point in the future.
So, yeah, it's still possible that Muschamp hasn't technically interviewed and that he only spoke to his previous contacts, but I find that a little bit unlikely. What seems more likely is that 'Champ is going to ride out his gig at Texas, wait for Mack Brown to retire and then take over a program that puts him in a better situation to succeed.
Now, it is still entirely possible that Auburn will offer him enough money, job security, etc., that it will lure him away, but I just think it seems pretty unlikely that he's crossing the Longhorns like this.
