Skip Holtz Denies North Carolina Coaching Candidate Rumors

Yahoo! Sports' Charles Robinson reported in the past week that South Florida Bulls coach Skip Holtz has emerged as a surprise candidate for the upcoming North Carolina Tar Heels job. It's been reported, message boards have fluttered, and now Holtz has denied it to TBO.com. The circle of life, the coaching carousel.

Here's Holtz:

"I have not talked to anybody," Holtz said. "It is this time of year when speculation goes on everywhere, who's going to take what job. I have not talked to anybody about the North Carolina job.

"I've got my head in my dungeon here trying to do what we have to do to find a way to win. I think we have that obligation to this senior class and to the underclassmen as we're trying to build the program. I'm excited about what we're building here. I'm excited about the progress we're making. I'm excited about the team I'm coaching here."

USF is 5-5 with a chance at a bowl game if it can sour Louisville's or West Virginia's Big East chances.
