LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville coach Steve Kragthorpe says
he's sticking around to help rebuild the Cardinals.
Kragthorpe said Friday he's not "a quitter" and has no plans
on stepping down.
Kragthorpe is 11-13 in two years at Louisville after taking over
for Bobby Petrino, who left the program 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, the team's worst loss in
more than 20 years.
The defeat dropped Louisville to 5-7, the program's first losing
season since 1997.
