AUSTIN -- Nobody knows who Texas will hire as its next head coach, but a big-time booster has his favorite.

Billionaire Texas donor Red McCombs insists he doesn't know who the Longhorns are going to hire, but asked Thursday if he had a recommendation, the San Antonio auto magnate didn't hesitate to offer his suggestion: Jon Gruden.

Reports confirmed that Texas has already interviewed Charlie Strong of Louisville and have interest in interviewing Baylor's Art Briles, among others.
