SAN JOSE -- San Jose State coach Mike MacIntyre said Monday that rumors of him being offered the job at Kentucky are false.
"There's no truth to that," MacIntyre said. "Even my daughter's calling me from Texas, saying 'Hey what's this?' It's just all Internet stuff.
"Those things are always going to fly. To me, that's good for the program. I know people think that distracts, but there's all kinds of stuff all over the Internet all the time. Honestly, I'm just trying to focus on the bowl game and recruiting and we'll go from there."
But MacIntyre said he has yet to be contacted by Kentucky, or any other schools with openings, including Cal.
"Nope, not as of right now," MacIntyre said. "We're just going along with what we're doing. I'm honestly just focused on that bowl game."
San Jose State wrapped up a 10-2 regular season -- its first 10-win season since 1987 -- with Saturday's 52-43 win over Louisiana Tech. The Spartans are ranked No. 25 in the BCS standings and are awaiting a bowl invitation.
Several reports in the weeks since Kentucky fired coach Joker Phillips have tied MacIntyre to the Wildcats' opening. Kentucky associate athletic director John Cropp was an assistant at Vanderbilt under George MacIntyre, Mike's father. Kentucky athletic director Mitch Barnhart is also reportedly close to Bill Parcells, whom MacIntyre worked under with the Dallas Cowboys.
MacIntyre was asked whether he owed it to himself to
"I don't know about that," he said. "I love it here. I've got a son that's a junior in high school. I know he definitely wants to see his senior year. There's a lot of issues that go into everything."
