Air Force Falcons head coach Troy Calhoun has turned down multiple BCS head coaching jobs during his tenure at Air Force as well as showing no interest in the Denver Broncos job. Last December, Calhoun turned down both the Tennessee and Colorado jobs to continue his tenure at Air Force.
The latest coaching news surrounding Calhoun is that he interviewed for the opening at Texas A&M, this according to Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle. The interview took place in New York City with Texas A&M athletic director Bill Byrne when the two were in town for the National Football Foundation’s awards show. This does make sense because Tim DeRuyter who is the current defensive coordinator for the Aggies held the same position at Air Force up until this past year. Calhoun was a candidate due to his time as a former assistant with the Houston Texans, so he knows the area due to his time with the Texans. Zwerneman is also reporting that the top choice for Texas A&M is still Houston Cougars head coach Kevin Sumlin.
However, sources have told Frank Schwab of the Colorado Springs Gazette that Calhoun is believed to not have interest in the Texas A&M job, nor was he interested in the opening for the North Carolina Tar Heels. Calhoun did not return a text message sent from Schawb regarding the interest in the Texas A&M job.
