TCU assistant Doug Meacham is not interested in the offensive coordinator position at Texas A&M, a school source told the Star-Telegram.

The person, who asked for anonymity, called speculation linking Meacham to the job “nonsense.”

Meacham and co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie received new contracts with TCU, athletic director Chris Del Conte said in December.

Both coaches interviewed for other positions following the end of the regular season. Meacham was a candidate for the head coaching position at North Texas, but withdrew (North Carolina offensive coordinator Seth Littrell got the job); Cumbie declined the offensive coordinator position at Texas.

An ESPN report Wednesday said Meacham and Texas State could not agree on compensation to have him become head coach.

At the Alamo Bowl last week, Meacham called TCU “a phenomenal school” that he was “very fortunate” to work for.

“I’m from the Metroplex. I grew up in Arlington; did Punt, Pass & Kick in the Carter when I was a kid,” he said. “You drive around the city, a lot of things remind you of when you were young – a lot of people you went to high school with, family and everything. Fort Worth is a great town. It is a great city. A lot of great people, a lot of true Horned Frogs fans. I can’t say enough about it.”
