A person familiar with the situation says Western Kentucky coach Bobby Petrino has interviewed with Louisville for its opening.
The person says the former Arkansas coach met Tuesday with Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich, who is seeking a replacement for Charlie Strong after he took the Texas job over the weekend. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the school has not announced candidates for the position.
The person also says Cardinals offensive coordinator Shawn Watson and defensive coordinator Vance Bedford are among ''several candidates'' that have interviewed for the position.
An announcement on Strong's successor could come as early as Thursday morning, when the University of Louisville Athletic Association is scheduled to meet to review Jurich's recommendation for the position.
