When smaller programs end up having success, the rumors begin to takeover.
This is exactly what is happening with Louisville right now.
The Cardinals are currently undefeated, No. 9 in the latest BCS rankings and are on the right track to appearing in a BCS bowl game for the first time since 2006. Because of this success, head coach Charlie Strong has to answer questions about possibly leaving the program.
After all, it is not very often when a coach stays with the little guy any longer than he has to. Once those dollars are thrown his way, we have seen many coaches pack up their bags and head to the nearest airport.
Strong has said multiple times that he is not going anywhere and is 100 percent committed to the program he is at. CBS Sports is reporting that Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich will match any offer to keep the current head coach in town.
Will he stay or will he go?
Well, we have heard many coaches say they aren't going anywhere and then end up leaving a couple of weeks later. There will also likely be a few head coaching positions open in the SEC, which is a much more attractive option than the Big East.
Let's take a look at three programs besides Louisville that Strong could be roaming the sidelines for next season.
