SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Rice head football coach Ray Alborn says he’s ’’very interested” in the possibility of joining San Antonio’s United States Football League dub when he quits his job at the end of the
Alborn said he discussed the matter with Gunslingers head coach GII Steinke last week during the USFL’s league meetings in Houston.
"I’m excited. I feel like I have an obligation to finish here, but I’m very interested,” Alborn said Thursday in a telephone interview from Houston. “My feeling right now is that I want to stay in coaching and I feel I have a lot to offer.” Steinke has confirmed that the Gunslingers, scheduled to begin play in March,
are interested in Alborn as an assistant coach.
He said discussions would continue at the end of Rice’s season, which is Nov. 12.
‘‘I don't know much about the franchise, but I know GU Steinke,” Alborn said. “I know San Antonio is a great city. That’s good enough for me.
"I’m also excited about the possibilities of the new league,” he said. ‘‘The only sports competition there is the San Antonio Spurs. I just think the people there are hungry for football.”
Rice currently scrapes the bottom of the Southwest Conference with an 0-5 mark. The Owls have a 1-7 record overaU, the only win coming over Southwest
Alborn, who graduated from Rice, announced his plans to quit earlier this season.
“When you don't have a job, then you keep the options open,” he said Thursday. “I’ve got a wife and two kids who have to eat.”
The coach said he hasn’t followed the Gunslingers’ tangle of legal problems. The USFL expansion franchise currently is embroiled in a stack of suits and countersuits.
“I don’t read the newspaper that much,” Alborn said. “They seem to think that everything’s going to fly there and that’s enough for me. I'm looking forward to talking to them when the season's over.”
