UTC head football coach Russ Huesman works on the sidelines during the Mocs' home football game against the Wofford Terriers at Finely Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 12, 2016, in Chattanooga, Tenn.

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga head football coach Russ Huesman has been linked to a coaching vacancy at Delaware and a possible opening at Richmond, according to various reports.

Attempts to reach Huesman Monday afternoon were unsuccessful. Huesman has gone 59-37 in eight seasons as the Mocs' head coach.

Richmond's current head coach, Danny Rocco, has also been linked to the Delaware opening after stating he would weigh other coaching offers in the off-season while questioning the vision of the Richmond program. A report Sunday night stated that Rocco and Delaware had possibly come to terms, but a report Monday had Rocco also linked to the recent opening at Temple.

Delaware fired head coach Dave Brock after going 19-22 in four seasons. If Rocco were to leave, the Spiders could potentially go after Huesman, who was the defensive coordinator at Richmond from 2004-08. Huesman is 36-16 in his last four seasons, the last three of which ended in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.

He makes $230,738 annually and is under contract through the 2020 season. Should Huesman leave, he has a buyout clause of just over $1 million. For a full story, read Tuesday's Times Free Press.
