Tennessee down to Cutcliffe?

Tennessee has seemingly moved on to Duke head coach David Cutcliffe as its favorite.

The Vols' former offensive coordinator (on two ocassions) could be the fallback candidate now that Will Muschamp and Troy Calhoun have dropped out of the running. Cutcliffe is 9-15 in two seasons at Duke. Five years ago he underwent triple bypass surgery. He has rebounded nicely making modest improvement at Duke.

Cutcliffe is 53-44 overall including a successful six-year stay at Ole Miss where he was 44-29. The Rebels tied for the SEC West title in 2003. From 1983-1992 Cutcliffe was a Tennessee assistant. From 1993-1998 he was Phil Fulmer's offensive coordinator before departing for Ole Miss.

Tennessee assistant Kippy Brown is still in the running along with a new name -- Louisiana Tech's Derek Dooley. The son of Vince Dooley is 17-20 in three seasons in Ruston, La. He coached under Nick Saban at both LSU and the Dolphins.

How come nobody ever talks about Pinkel from Mizzou? He has taken the worst program and made them a contender every year in the Big 12 north (despite how weak it is). They score alot of points and are fun to watch. UT can easily pay him alot more money and the UT facilities are better than anything Mizzou has.

Im telling you guys its done. David Cutcliffe is the next coach for UT.

The Knoxville News Sentinel is reporting head coach will be named Tennessee's next head coach barring a last-second snag in negotiations.

The newspaper is among a handful of media outlets that have cited unnamed sources throughout the day in regards to the UT coaching story. WBIR Channel 10 in Knoxville reported earlier this afternoon that Cutcliffe had taken the job, then revised a story on its website to say

Cutcliffe twice served on Tennessee's staff and spent eight years as the Vols' offensive coordinator under . In between his stints in Knoxville, Cutcliffe coached at Mississippi for six seasons and has developed quarterbacks Peyton Manning and during his career.

Thats the news in knoxville I would rather have Lovie than Cut personally. He sure hasnt had a look of a coach enjoying himself up in Chicago the last couple years. Actually it would help the Bears and the Vols. I mean he is going to be out in Chicago if he doesnt turn it around and with the Cutler baby I dont think he can. Their D has not been the same since Rivera left.

What about one of Bobby Bowden's sons ........In fact, the whole family.  None of them have anything pressing at the moment.

And if Lame Duck Hamilton wants a coach from an obscure program, shoot bring in Ron Zook !  Use him like our AD did for a couple of years.  He's an awesome recruiter, just don't let him have a headset on game days.  Then hire a top notch coach in 2012........
