Louisville AD Jurich plans on hiring new coach soon

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich says he will move quickly to pick his next head coach, and he hopes the new hire will stay for the long term.

Jurich is keeping his options open for the ''100 or 200'' candidates he joked have shown interest in replacing Charlie Strong, who told the AD on Saturday night that he's leaving for Texas. Jurich didn't mention potential candidates Sunday but said ''everybody is in play'' - even Western Kentucky's Bobby Petrino, a former Cardinals coach.

Losing Strong four days after star quarterback Teddy Bridgewater said he would enter the NFL draft wasn't what Jurich expected with Louisville joining top-ranked Florida State in the Atlantic Coast Conference next year. But he believes the pending move will make for a stronger field of candidates.
