"I'm not approaching it any different than any other game," Weatherbie said during his weekly news conference on Tuesday. "That's never crossed my mind. I plan on coaching as long as the Good Lord keeps me in this profession."
With the Warhawks 6-5 overall and playing host to Middle Tennessee on Saturday, Weatherbie said he's focused on ULM's opportunity to win seven games for the first time since 1993.
"I'm excited about this last ballgame at home," Weatherbie said. "An opportunity to make some history."
Quarterback Trey Revell said Weatherbie's contract status hasn't been a hot topic of conversation in the locker room either.
"We haven't really," Revell said. "Nothing has crossed our mind about that. There's talk here and there about it. But all we can do is play football for him and show everybody how good a coach he is with his seven wins. So, hopefully we'll be bowl eligible for the first time in ULM history and we'll see what happens after that."
In his seventh season at ULM, Weatherbie talked briefly about the program's progression under his direction when asked a follow-up question.
"We've had some ups and downs," Weatherbie said. "We're very, very close. We're very close to getting over the hump, so to speak. It has progressed. We were just a play away from going to a bowl game for a couple of years now. For us to have a chance to win this game and do that would be very special for everybody involved on this campus and every alum."
