Evan Barnes, Memphis Commercial Appeal
For the second straight year, Memphis football coach Mike Norvell’s name is being mentioned as a candidate for multiple job openings at Power Five conference schools.
Norvell addressed those reports Tuesday after practice ahead of Saturday’s American Athletic Conference championship game against UCF.
“I think it’s always a compliment when people are saying good things about you, your staff, your football team because of what we’ve been able to accomplish,” Norvell said. “There’s a tremendous commitment here at Memphis and I think more than any words I can say, I think I’ve proved with my actions the commitment I have to this community to what we’re doing.”
Reports have mentioned Norvell as a candidate for head coaching vacancies at Louisville, Colorado and Texas Tech.
