Not Many Takers for Tennessee Football Job...Yet

Lots of Big Names are being thrown about as possible replacements for Tennessee Football Coach Phil Fulmer.

To date, they've all got the same answer...

And that's NO.

From former Fulmer Assistant David Cutcliffe, who's now the Head Coach at Duke...

To current North Carolina boss Butch Davis..

Even NFL Head Coach Jon Gruden, who has ties to Knoxville, is backing away from the Vols top job.

  Gruden says:

"This is really the only job I've ever wanted and as long as they want me I'll be here. In respect to Tennessee, I grew up there a bit and my wife is from there, but this is where I want to be and I can only make myself that clear."

Tennessee is off this week.

The Vols next play at Vanderbilt November 22nd.
