Did Louisville HC Charlie Strong interview for Auburn job?

Did Louisville head football coach Charlie Strong interview for the vacant HC job at Auburn? Strong denied contact with the school, but Charles Goldberg of al.com claims otherwise.

"The conversation took place in the last two days with someone representing Auburn, AL.com has learned, according to someone familiar with the process. The conversation may have been by telephone. 

Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated tweeted he talked to Strong, who said he had not interviewed with Auburn. "

The dueling accounts sound like a classic he said-they said moment. With al.com's report coming on the same day is was announced that Louisville would be joining the ACC in 2014, Strong's denial has the sound of a HC not wanting to rain on his school's big day.
