TCU co-offensive coordinator Justin Fuente said he has not talked with LSU about the Tigers' offensive coordinator opening, despite rumors that the 32-year old assistant was a top candidate.
Fuente, who interviewed recently for the same position at Clemson, has helped lead the Horned Frogs offense to all-time benchmarks in yards and scoring since becoming a co-coordinator with Jarrett Anderson before the 2009 season. Before that, Fuente had been the Frogs' running backs coach since 2007.
Running back Ed Wesley was on crutches during the Frogs' celebration Sunday at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. He's still nursing a mid-season injury that was aggravated during the Rose Bowl, in which Wesley only carried the ball four times. Wesley said he has about five more weeks of recovery, which means he should be healthy for spring practice.
Linebacker Tank Carder's right arm -- the one he used to swat down Wisconsin's two-point conversion pass attempt in the Rose Bowl -- was in a sling Sunday evening. Carder, who injured the shoulder last spring, had surgery last week. It's unknown whether Carder will be ready for contact by April.
