Feldman also reports the Volunteers reached out to Purdue's Jeff Brohm and North Carolina State's Dave Doeren.

With Duke's David Cutcliffe and Iowa State's Matt Campbell out of the picture, Tennessee has turned its coaching search focus to Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy. He then took the head coaching position in 2005 and has been the head coach since.

The 50-year-old is a native Oklahoman and starred at quarterback for the Cowboys from 1986 to 1989. He has a 113-53 record in his 13 seasons at Oklahoma State, including back-to-back 10-win seasons in 2015 and "16, with a chance for a third with a bowl win in 2017".
