Last week brought us one of the busiest weeks of the season for UA football.

The Wildcats rolled over Boston College in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl on Tuesday and then two days later landed one of highest ranked recruits in program history in Washington D.C., cornerback Jalen Tabor.

It was a wild week that left most exhausted.

This week should be significantly quieter — emphasis on should be.

The rumors of Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez being Louisville's top target for the school's vacant head coaching position were rampant on Sunday, but seem to be cooling off this morning.

Let's recap.

On Sunday, reported that Rodriguez was at the top of Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich's short list and was going to begin working on Rodriguez right away.

A couple of other outlets mentioned Rodriguez as a possible candidate as well. 

But today, things began to sway the other way.

UA athletic director Greg Byrne tweeted something that should make all UA fans feel better:

That should put an end to most rumors for now and indicates that a contract extension/raise could be coming for Rodriguez in the coming days.

Before Byrne tweeted, John Clay, a columnist with the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky tweeted that he didn't believe Rodriguez was a candidate for the opening

Also today, USA Today's Paul Myerberg broke down the pros and cons of the Louisville opening and mentioned nine possible candidates for the job. Rodriguez wasn't mentioned

If Rodriguez does in fact stay, which seems to be the popular pick now, the attention will turn to Ka'Deem Carey and whether or not he will declare for May's NFL draft.
