Earlier this week, there was a report that Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh were candidates for the University of Texas job.

According to Bob Labriola of Steelers.com, Tomlin ain't interested.

As for Harbaugh, when asked about it Thursday, he said "Are you trying to be funny?" He's also  in the third year of a $25 million deal and there was a report that he "flat-out rejected" USC when it came after him after it fired Lane Kiffin.

If Mack Brown is in his last season with the Longhorns (update: he isn't), and if Nick Saban can be lured away from Alabama (update: he can't), we'd like to throw another name out there: Mike and/or Kyle Shanahan. Both have experience working with young quarterbacks, and both will almost certainly be available in the coming weeks.
