One coaching name that could make a jump up to a higher level is San Jose State's Mike MacIntyre.
MacIntyre has taken the Spartans from 1-10 in his first season in 2010 to 10-2 in 2012. But he told the San Jose Mercury News that he has yet to be contacted by schools with openings, adding he wasn't offered the Kentucky job.
"There's no truth to that," MacIntyre told the paper. "Even my daughter's calling me from Texas, saying 'Hey what's this?' It's just all internet stuff. Those things are always going to fly.
"To me, that's good for the program. I know people think that distracts, but there's all kinds of stuff all over the internet all the time. Honestly, I'm just trying to focus on the bowl game and recruiting and we'll go from there."
His name has also been brought up as a possible candidate for the Cal job. Still, MacIntyre was asked if he would listen to offers that came his way, which would include sizable pay raises.
"I don't know about that," he told the paper. "I love it here. I've got a son that's a junior in high school. I know he definitely wants to see his senior year. There's a lot of issues that go into everything."
