UCF coach George O'Leary knocked down long-standing rumors his contract contained language designating a head-coach-in-waiting when pressed by WKMG's Channel 6 at his Monday news conference.

When reporter Mike Holfeld asked OLeary if there were clauses in his contract that addressed the future coaching staff, O'Leary repeatedly said no.

UCF has declined to release O'Leary's contract on numerous occasions, including an Orlando Sentinel request in May. The school has not indicated why it has not responded to the Sentinels information request.

In the past, OLeary has touted offensive coordinator Brent Key as a strong candidate for his job whenever the head coach retires. Some had suggested OLearys contract included provisions formally putting Key in line for the head coaching job, but the coachs responses Monday indicate those theories were incorrect.
