The website CoachingSearch.com reported Mariucci's interest in the job earlier Sunday, citing unnamed sources.
"I just had a few phone calls from my son and a few friends asking what's going on, and to be honest, I hadn't heard about it," said Mariucci, who's now an NFL Network analyst. "It comes as a complete surprise to me."
Mariucci, 56, added that he would only take another coaching job if it were "the right situation."
"I haven't ruled it out (coaching again)," he said. "I enjoy what I do now. If something that comes up that makes sense, but I've had no contact with Arkansas."
Mariucci also has worked at Northern Michigan, Cal State-Fullerton, Louisville and USC.
