Florida State athletics director Randy Spetman issued a statement Thursday saying he is not a candidate for a similar job at Rutgers.
"Contrary to media reports, I am not a candidate for a position at Rutgers," Spetman said in a statement issued by FSU's sports information department. "I was contacted by their representatives some time ago, but let them know at that time that I was happy with my position at Florida State and would not be a candidate."
The Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger reported Wednesday that Spetman was a candidate to replace former athletics director Tim Pernetti, who resigned April 5 after the Mike Rice coaching abuse scandal.
Spetman, who is in the final year of his contract, replaced Dave Hart at FSU in 2008. He makes $350,000 in annual salary, with $200,000 of that coming from state funds.
