Louisville's Charlie Strong Turned Down Vols?

Apparently Tennessee went after Louisville coach Charlie Strong, but he reportedly turned down a contract offer from the Vols and will sign a lucrative extension to stay with the Louisville long term. Per Sports Illustrated...
quote:

Louisville and Strong are finalizing a long-term extension that could be announced as early as Thursday. It’s expected to be a significant commitment in both years and dollars and will reportedly put Strong in the top echelon of coaches in the ACC.

The Louisville extension ends Tennessee’s courtship of Strong, who had one brief meeting on Sunday with Tennessee chancellor Jimmy Cheek in Louisville. That was Strong’s only direct contact with another university.

The rumor of Bo looking at Tenn job has legs in the land of Nebraska with a new AD coming in (2013). One thing that should be mentioned is that Mrs. Bo loves Lincoln and the church/lifestyle there. If Bo had the ability to pull SEC talent to go along with his aggressive style, he would do pretty well in the talent rich SEC territory. No, this is not a confirmation that he has or is being considered in Tenn, but the Nebraska radio buzz (Sports shows)are saying it is a possibility the rumor of him at least considering or listening to Tenn is there!
I also should also mention that some high dollar boosters would not be heartbroken as his past sideline demeanor is not well received by them. Bo is a good coach who has done well with the level of assistant coaching help he has had to draw from (by his own choice). If he had an open checkbook to bring in the best assistants he could, I am not sure he would not be the next Saben.
