Vance Bedford: 'I'm in it to win it'

With only 22 characters, Vance Bedford said everything you need to know about him as a coach. 

The majority of the talk surrounding the Louisville job has centered around the possible return of Bobby Petrino, but current Louisville defensive coordinator refuses the cede the job to the former Cardinals head coach.

To be fair, Bedford is playing a winning hand here. If he doesn't get the job, Bedford has one of the plumb coordinator jobs in all of college football waiting on him - the defensive coordinator at Texas. 

Together with his old (and possibly future) boss Charlie Strong, Bedford produced a Louisville defense that led FBS in total defense, ranked third in yards per play and finished one measly point behind Florida State for the FBS scoring defense title. 

Bedford, 55, has never been a head coach before, but has served as an FBS assistant since 1987.
