Tennessee Targeting Mike Gundy As Coaching Search Continues

The Latest Tennessee Head Coaching Hot Board

Tennessee's coaching search has zeroed in on Oklahoma State HC Mike Gundy, according to ESPN's Chris Low.

Tennessee is scrambling to fill their vacancy after firing head coach Butch Jones earlier this month.

Low says that Tennessee is prepared "to make Gundy one of the SEC's highest-paid coaches" if he accepts the job. He also reportedly turned down the Florida position after the Chip Kelly chose UCLA over the Gators.

The possibility of three straight 10-win seasons, pending the result of a bowl, and that many wins in four of the last five seasons, is good for Gundy's job security in the bigger picture. No, Gundy would be an absolute steal for the Volunteers.

The former Rutgers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach had previously worked as a defensive assistant at Penn State under former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted of child molestation stemming from his tenure with the Nittany Lions in 2012. He's led Oklahoma State to 10 or more wins in five of the last eight seasons counting this season, and the Cowboys are now 9-3 this year.

"Sources said Gundy has had "frustrations" in the past with Oklahoma State's administration, especially with his most recent contract negotiations", McMurphy reported. The opposite answer, however, could turn around the program.
