AUSTIN (AP) -- Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp insists he's staying with the Longhorns and hasn't interviewed for any other jobs.

Muschamp, recently tagged as coach Mack Brown's eventual replacement at Texas, said Friday in a statement he isn't interested in other jobs and is happy in Austin.

A television station in Mobile, Ala., reported, citing unidentified sources, that Muschamp would be named Auburn's coach Friday.

Muschamp agreed to become coach-in-waiting behind Brown, who has no plans to retire soon, last month. The deal more than doubled Muschamp's salary to $900,000. Muschamp was the defensive coordinator at Auburn in 2007. Tommy Tuberville stepped down last week after 10 seasons as Auburn coach.
