Latest updates, rumors on search for head coach

01 December 2017

Tennessee athletic director John Currie was incognito for part of Thursday as well. The Volunteers have gone through a long and painful coaching search this offseason.

According to Newy Scruggs of NBC Dallas-Fort Worth, Tennessee is "working on a deal" with Washington State coach Mike Leach. He took over a four win Cougars team and flipped the script.

But one person whose name has been mentioned all along is Leach, who has turned around Washington State's program.

The Vols had another coach in their sights on Thursday, but just like the last few days, Tennessee didn't end up getting the man they were targeting.

While we have made fun of Tennessee's head coaching search, Leach would actually be a tremendous hire.

With students, faculty and even politicians criticizing Currie for considering Schiano, he was dropped out of the coaching race for the Volunteers.

And now, the latest: North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren won't be hired either.

The Volunteers are not eligible for a bowl game and will begin their 2018 season against West Virginia University on September 1 of next year.
