Where Should Tennessee Turn Next In Coaching Search?

Report: OSU's Mike Gundy meeting with Tennessee about coaching vacancy Reports: Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy to interview with Tennessee
Charlie Simmons | 30 November, 2017, 14:26

While Tennessee emissaries spoke Monday night to Purdue coach Jeff Brohm, embattled athletics director John Currie traveled to Dallas to meet with Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy, a previous target in UT coaching searches. Gundy earlier this year inked a contract extension with the Cowboys that paid him $4.2 million this season and included very minimal escalators in following years.

If Gundy was to leave his alma mater after more than a decade as head coach, it would be a bit of a shock to Cowboys fans - especially considering Gundy's remarks on Saturday that his stability in Stillwater was "more than ever".

This isn't the first time Gundy has turned down the Vols either.

Sources told Low, however, that Gundy has not met face-to-face with Tennessee officials.

Allen said the meeting was set to happen in Dallas Tuesday morning.

Chris Landry reports that Tennessee admins feel landing Gundy, who it probably should have contacted before Greg Schiano, is a "long shot". He was also rumored to be up for the job in 2012.

This was the second year in row that Gundy reportedly met with another university about a coaching vacancy. He won the 2010 Big 12 Coach of the Year award, and has sent notable players such as Dez Bryant and Russell Okung to the NFL.

Gundy, 50, has been head coach at Oklahoma State since 2005 and has an overall head coaching record of 113-53. With a bowl game victory, the 9-3 Cowboys would make it three consecutive seasons with 10 or more wins and four of their last five.
