UC coach says UK hasn't called

Posted: Updated:

Rumored to be a candidate for the soon to be vacant head football coaching job at Kentucky, Butch Jones said Monday he has not been contacted by UK.

"You hear things out there and I think that's a compliment to our football program," UC's head coach said. "But, all my energy and focus is on the University of Cincinnati and getting a quality bowl game. I live in a bunker, I study film and all my effort and energy is on every single player in our football program." 

UK recently announced head coach Joker Phillips will not be back next season. Jones is under contract at UC through 2017.
