no - this functionality doesn't yet exist in IOS.
... except in the way WCCP works, which is still cisco-proprietary.

you may be able to get it working if you use a route-map to set the
next-hop to a directly-connected address (eg. a /30 network on a
fastethernet which is actually a cross-over connection). if the
interface link layer goes down, the route-map may not even match.

i'm not sure about this, not tested. even so, most cache failures
don't result in the loss of carrier on the NIC - more software
