Temple's Steve Addazio Not Interested In Illinois Job, According To Report

The Illinois Fighting Illini were interested in talking with Temple football coach Steve Addazio about their coaching vacancy, but Addazio declined to be interviewed according to a report from the Philadelphia Daily News (via). When told about the interest from Illinois, Addazio told Temple athletic director Bill Bradshaw that "he was very happy to be at Temple, and not interested in that opportunity."

Addazio just completed his first season with the Owls, a successful 8-4 campaign. He spent the previous six years as an assistant coach at the University of Florida.

Now that they know one of their candidates is staying put, the Illini will have to move on down a list that could include the likes of Paul Chryst, Greg Schiano and Butch Jones.
