Gundy talking to Tennessee Volunteers

Gundy talking to Tennessee Volunteers

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. OSU officials have reportedly known about this situation for close to 24 hours now.

ESPN.com's Chris Low reported Tennessee pursued Gundy in 2013.

The 50-year-old reached an agreement with Oklahoma State on a new five-year contract in June that replaced the previous one that was set to expire in December 2019.

He now holds a 113-53 (69-42 Big 12) overall record, which includes going 7-4 in bowl games and a Big 12 championship in 2011.

Horst Seehofer, the Bavarian prime minister and head of the CSU, said an alliance with the SPD was "the best option for Germany". An Emnid survey for the Bild newspaper yesterday showed that 52% of Germans were in favour of a repeat grand coalition.

Gundy is the winningest football coach in Oklahoma State history with a 113-53 record.

The Cowboys finished 9-3 this season and finished 3rd in the Big 12.

The talk swirling around Gundy comes two days after the Volunteers backed out of the hiring agreement involving leading candidate Greg Schiano following a public backlash and campus protests.

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.
