Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen said Thursday he has not been contacted by the University of Pittsburgh regarding their head coaching vacancy.

“I have not been contacted,” Holgorsen said.

Rumors of discussion between Holgorsen and Pitt began swirling Thursday, but the Cowboys' first-year coordinator maintains he's pretty happy in Stillwater.

Asked if he would be interested in the Pitt job if contacted, Holgorsen said, “I'm pretty happy where I am at.”

A report surfaced that Holgorsen was in Pittsburgh interviewing for the job on Thursday. Holgorsen denied that report Thursday night via text message saying, “I'm in Houston, have been all day.”

Holgorsen's name has been linked to the Pittsburgh job since Dave Wannstedt resigned Tuesday. Pittsburgh media reports have Holgorsen high on the wish list of Pitt athletic director Steve Peterson.

OSU head coach Mike Gundy said Monday he feels good about keeping Holgorsen on staff.
