@BFeldmanCBS: Tennessee has offered the Vols head coaching job to Mike Gundy, a source told CBS this morning.
This doesn't make much sense as Gundy is an Oklahoma State grad (was QB on the Thurman Thomas/Barry Sanders teams) and seems happy there. Perhaps he is just looking for a raise.
whatever his reasoning is, he has already at the very least interviewed there. Read some tweets from those on the inside saying it would be interesting to be a fly on the wall when Gundy talks with T. Boone Pickens, as Pickens basically has funded whatever request OSU has given him.

In related news I offered Kate beckinsale the position of my wife.
T. Boone Pickens
All I know for sure are two things at this point.
1. He's a man
2. He's 40 (was)
hmm....interesting. The rumors have been flying for quite a while about Gundy/cStrong/Tressell
Im not believing anything on this hire until the press conference.
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
THAT AIN'T RIGHT!!
Dominating Press Conferences Since 2007
Tressel would be the slam dunk hire for UT. Close proximity to his Ohio recruiting roots and the guy is a damn good coach. What he allowed at OSU w tattoo gate is peanuts in the SEC.
They're gonna end up with Danny Hope's moustache trimmings, this coaching search sounds a lot like Michigan's, where they are swinging and potentially missing on a lot of odd candidates
I'm not convinced Gundy is that good of a coach? Boone Pickens is the man in that operation.
As Ham Porter mentions above, all we know about Gundy is he is a man and he was 40.
Gruden was the great savior, and they allegedly had talks with him. The big rumor is that he wanted 3mil for his assistants and the school wouldnt do it.
Charlie Strong was yesterdays big name, but right now they are saying he is staying at Louisville.
Fedora interviewed last night.
Jimbo Fisher already said he is not interested.
Kirby Smart flirted with it and got a new contract out of it.
Fill Phulmer would be a popular choice, until the first year he doesnt beat Florida.
Gundy has been talked about, but most of the "experts" want Strong because he is a defense guy, and that is where UT needs the most work. They did just fine on the O side of the ball this past year.
Nothing will shock me. Maybe Gruden, Fulmer or Spurrier would shock me. But that is about it.
THAT'S NOT TRUE
My kid said that there were two new Lexus' delivered to the football building yesterday. Probably means nothing.
The guy's a good coach, and what do you do? YOU DOWNGRADE HIM!
Not sure if he runs the offense at Oak State but if he does that would be enough to pursue him.
Reports are they also offered Arkansas Brett a few days ago as well
35,600 posts and counting since 09-09-2002. tRCMB Dead Pool Commissioner.
Tressel would be a shock, because schools would have to get around the show-cause penalty.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
It's the SEC. Those are for the players.
I havent heard anything about them offering Brett. But I heard they have spent some time on Petrino.
I agree completely. The fans (hahah) say they may as well take Tressell and miss next years bowl game, cause any of the other coaches wont get them there anyways.
Love this search
Those fans are definitely crazy. No school has ever hired a coach with that kind of penalty hanging around their neck before.
I wish I could get Roushar to UT rumor going...
But have any of their assistants spent time on Petrino?
