With the Bulls in the midst of spring football and USF Head coach Skip Holtz name being listed as a possible candidate for vacant Arkansas job, Holtz addressed the situation on Wednesday.
Holtz first addressed the Bulls practice, saying there was a lot of intensity at this morning practice, the last before the team’s second scrimmage this Saturday. Coach said he thought it was one of the more spirited practicees of camp.
Holtz then talked about the elephant in the room, his name and thew Arkansas job opening..
"It’s flattering that my name has come up,” said Holtz. "My wife said why would anybody want to hire you? You were 5-7, and that puts it all in perspective.”
“I have not talked to anybody from Arkansas," said Holtz. "We've been through this drill before. It's flattering having your name floating around, but right now we have a job to do here. We're in the middle of spring ball and I don't want any distractions with his team as we're building this thing. It was business as usual today.”
When asked if he’s listen.
“I can’t say that I’m standing by the phone,” said Holtz. “I’m doing what I do here, I can’t control what other people think, or say.”
"I am not looking to leave here and I'm not calling anybody. I am not trying to put my name out there," said Holtz. "I want to be the head football coach here, I enjoy it here, and I like it here."
"My home is in Tampa," said Holtz. "My wife is here. My kids are here. This is where I want to be."
