LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville football coach Steve Kragthorpe says he has no plans on leaving and wants to rebuild the team after its first losing season since 1997.
He said Friday he's not "a quitter." Kragthorpe is 11-13 in two years at Louisville after taking over for Bobby Petrino. Petrino left after leading the Cardinals to the Orange Bowl in 2006.
Louisville began the season 5-2, including an upset of South Florida on Oct. 25. A five-game losing streak followed, culminating in a 63-14 loss to Rutgers on Thursday. It was the team's worst loss in more than 20 years and dropped Louisville to 5-7.
