KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Duke coach and former Tennessee
assistant David Cutcliffe may be a target in the Volunteers' search
for a new head coach.
Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton has not commented
publicly on who his candidates are to replace Lane Kiffin, who
abruptly resigned Tuesday night to coach Southern California.
But Duke spokesman Art Chase called reports of a deal between
Cutcliffe and Tennessee are inaccurate.
Air Force coach Troy Calhoun released a statement Thursday
saying he was looking forward to coaching the Falcons again in
2010, ending speculation that he was a candidate.
Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp and TCU coach Gary
Patterson have both said they have not been contacted by Tennessee.
