D-line coach Clint Hurtt staying at Louisville

After interviewing with Auburn for its vacant defensive line coach job, Clint Hurtt is staying at Louisville.

Cardinals coach Charlie Strong tweeted today that Hurtt would be staying with the school.
“Big news!! The big hurtt is staying with the cardinals,” he tweeted.

Hurtt, who was ESPN’s 2011 national recruiter of the year and had ties to South Florida, reportedly interviewed in Auburn on Wednesday for the job, which came open after Tracy Rocker left to join the Tennessee Titans last week.
Auburn is also interested in talking to former Minnesota defensive line coach Tim Cross, according to AuburnUndercover.com. Cross and current Tigers defensive coordinator Ted Roof worked together for a year in 2008 with the Golden Gophers.
Cross, who was not in football last year, previously worked at Minnesota (2007-08, d-line), Syracuse (2005-06, d-line) and Texas (strength coach, 2001-04).

  1. Does Hurtt look like Warren Sapp to you? I can't believe someone turned us down–unheard of! Cross doesn't sound very exciting, but I'll trust Chizik.

  2. He wasn't the right fit for Auburn.

    So, he stays at losserville.

  3. Knowing Bitter he has the story backwards. Remember the story Bitter posted telling us that Malzhan had accepted the Vandy job? Bitter is just a cut and paste off Fox Sports Thayer Evans, whetever Thayer writes, Biter thinks is the gospel, even falsehoods.

  4. Yes, I created a fake Twitter account for Charlie Strong and tweeted that Clint Hurtt is staying at Louisville. That makes complete sense.

  5. Andy, if you're going to cut and paste someone, you should pick someone better than Evans. Like at least Lee Corso.

  7. I don't understand the animosity towards Andy. He is one(if not the) best beat reporters for Auburn. I get news from him all year round. Only thing I could begrudge him for is feeding my unhealthy addiction to following a sports team instead of working harder or getting a more productive hobby.

  10. Right-clicking is a trade secret!

    You certainly have a grasp on punctuation and capitalization. I'll give you that.
