Bob Stoops was basically not saying anything one way or the other in regards to his interest in the Cleveland Browns.  He definitely did not say no.  Credit to Daryl Ruiter of 92.3 The Fan for being Johnnyonthespot with the quotes.

In a more general sense, when Dan Patrick asked him about the NFL in general, he really stammered his way through the answer before coming to the point that he is really happy doing what he is right now.  Again, Stoops did nothing to suggest he was not interested in potentially making that leap.

There was a report yesterday during the Sugar Bowl that Stoops had a good shot to get the job if he wanted it.  It remains to be seen if that was true or just a curveball thrown into the mix, but Stoops certainly did nothing to suggest it could not happen.  Stoops could ultimately use the Browns and the win over Alabama last night to get himself a nice pay raise as well.
