Muschamp: 'I'm going to be at Texas'

AUSTIN, Texas -- Early speculation was Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick might consider Will Muschamp for the vacant coaching job created when Charlie Weis was fired earlier today.

Swarbrick was said to be considering a coach with a defensive background. Muschamp is one of the nation's premier defensive coordinators and has already been promised the head-coaching job at Texas when Mack Brown retires.

But Muschamp shot down that speculation with a few well-chosen words during his meeting with reporters today.

"I'm going to be at Texas," Muschamp said.
