LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska coach Bo Pelini says he has no interest in the vacant coaching job at Michigan.

Pelini told The Associated Press on Friday that "there is no truth" to a media report that he would listen to Michigan if there was interest. The Wolverines fired Rich Rodriguez this week.

Pelini's name was connected to the opening at Miami last month before Temple's Al Golden was hired. Pelini also shot down reports that he was interested in that job.

The 43-year-old Pelini led the Cornhuskers to a 10-4 record in his third season at Nebraska, with losses in three of the last four games.
