The former Texas Tech coach is getting some lobbying help for the open job at Miami, though.
Donald Trump sent a letter to university President Donna Shalala this week, suggesting the Hurricanes hire Leach to replace the departed Randy Shannon. Leach and Trump have been friends for several years.
"It'd be fun" to coach at Miami, Leach told The Associated Press.
After all, it's just a three-hour drive to Miami from Key West, Fla., where Leach moved his family from Lubbock shortly after his dismissal last December.
Besides Miami, there are Big Ten coaching vacancies at Indiana, which fired Bill Lynch over the weekend, and Minnesota, which dismissed Tim Brewster during the season. Speculation abounds about the future of Rich Rodriguez at Michigan, which ended the year 7-5, and Pac-12-bound Colorado fired Dan Hawkins, too.
"I think most folks know where to find me," Leach said.
